Blues for Lady Day: The Story of Billie Holiday

by Paolo Parisi
£12.99   paperback  One Peace Books (2019)

Blues for Lady Day: The Story of Billie Holiday by Paolo Parisi Billie Holiday, one of the greatest jazz singers of all time, had a troubled life: a childhood in poverty, brothels, jail, broken love, and a dependence on alcohol and heroin. Her first performances in the night clubs of prohibitionist America was where her pioneering vocal style was born--later to become a lasting influence on jazz, pop, and modern music to this day.
 
Performing with jazz legends such as Lester Young, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, and Artie Shaw, she became a true American icon. This graphic novel, told through short biographical fragments, is the story of Lady Day.
