Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix and B.B. King have been profiled by Universal Music Enterprises' "Deluxe Sound+Vision" series. Joining that illustrious lineup is jazz legend Billie Holiday, who would have turned 90 this year. This double-CD retrospective and DVD provides an intriguing and comprehensive look at the woman nicknamed "Lady Day" by saxophonist Lester Young. CD-wise, the package includes aural highlights of the singer/songwriter's career that have already been featured in earlier collections: "Strange Fruit," "God Bless the Child," "Don't Explain" and "My Man (Mon Homme)." Still stellar in their own right, these songs become even more compelling thanks to the accompanying DVD spotlighting Holiday's unique and influential stylings in film and TV clips. Long before the superstar pairing of Usher and Alicia Keys, there was Holiday with the legendary Duke Ellington in the 1935 video short "Symphony in Black: A Rhapsody of Negro Life" and with the inimitable Louis Armstrong on "I Cover the Waterfront." In one audio excerpt, Holiday notes that the blues "is sort of a mixed-up thing. You just have to feel it." And thanks to Holiday, we do.—GM
