Lady Was Singing The Blues / cd|16


There are some great voices from the past that accompany us till today. Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf, Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington are some of the greatest female voices ever. Voices that you hear once and either you love instantly or never really appreciate for the rest of your life. I’ve heard this compilation many times before I post it. Each time I heard it, the same question was kept bothering me: “Are there any new female artists that can get any close to those legends nowadays?” I’m sorry but you’ll have to wait a couple of days for the answer… Be patient.
