Abbey Lincoln, one of the legends of vocal jazz, evokes Billie Holiday in this beautiful, bluesy set of standards from 1959. Her vocal power is on full display here, with the help of a fantastic rhythm section and Kenny Dorham on trumpet. The emotional richness in her music is remarkable.

Grade: B+.
