JAZZ and other music

Lady Day
(1915 - 1959)
For over sixty years I have been a devoted jazz fan.
It all started with Gershwin, Porter and other American classics.
But soon I discovered real jazz.
Since 1955 I have been collecting records--especially everything I could get hold of by Billie Holiday. Meanwhile I own about 600 recordings by this outstanding singer.
