Back when Billie Holiday was first accorded the accolade it really meant something. On 2 July 20 year old Billie began a recording partnership with pianist Teddy Wilson that proved to be very productive and included some classic sides. Over the next twelve months Billie recorded about a dozen more sides with Teddy before going into the studio under her own name, with her own orchestra. It was not an easy engagement for Billie.
