The first popular jazz singer to move audiences with the intense, personal feeling of classic blues, Billie Holiday changed the art of American pop vocals forever. More than a half-century after her death, it's difficult to believe that prior to her emergence, jazz and pop singers were tied to the Tin Pan Alley tradition and rarely personalized their songs; only blues singers like Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey actually gave the impression they had lived through what they were singing. Billie Holiday's highly stylized reading of this blues tradition revolutionized traditional pop, ripping the decades-long tradition of song plugging in two by refusing to compromise her artistry for either the song or the band. She made clear her debts to Bessie Smith and Louis Armstrong (in her autobiography she admitted, "I always wanted Bessie's big sound and Pops' feeling"), but in truth her style was virtually her own, quite a shock in an age of interchangeable crooners and band singers.

This is a rather incredible collection: ten CDs enclosed in a tight black box that includes every one of the recordings Verve owns of Billie Holiday, not only the many studio recordings of 1952-57 (which feature Lady Day joined by such jazz all-stars as trumpeters Charlie Shavers and Harry "Sweets" Edison, altoist Benny Carter, and the tenors of Flip Phillips, Paul Quinichette and Ben Webster). Also included are prime performances at Jazz at the Philharmonic concerts in 1945-1947, an enjoyable European gig from 1954, her "comeback" Carnegie Hall concert of 1956, Holiday's rather sad final studio album from 1959, and even lengthy tapes from two informal rehearsals. It's a perfect purchase for the true Billie Holiday fanatic.

Genre: RnB, Soul, Gospel | Label: Sony Music

It's almost unthinkable that contemporary gospel star Kirk Franklin hasn't had a greatest-hits offering before now. He sold over seven million records between 1993 and 2011, and that total continues to rise. In addition, Franklin is a true crossover artist: his recordings have consistently charted on the pop, R&B, and gospel charts. Sony Legacy lays out this eclectically sequenced double-disc comp full of singles and album tracks from all of his Gospocentric recordings. As if to showcase just how wide-ranging Franklin's music is, the album opener — a live "He Reigns/Awesome God (The Medley)," from his 2002 album The Rebirth of Kirk Franklin.

For smooth vocals with some funky backing you can't beat the Chi-Lites, whose 70s smash hits are all included in this generous package, mastered from the best sources ever. They were Chi-Town's #1 soul group of the 70s. Between 1969 and 1975 the Chi Lites racked up 23 US Hot 100 hits. This compilation achieves a fine balance that incorporates all their biggest successes and throws in a few of the lesser hits that are beloved by all connoisseurs of quality group soul.
