Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf
Telling Stories from the Heart
"I think I took this from Billie and Piaf, that many of the so-called great singers love their notes more than their text...Not that there was anything wrong with the chosen notes. There was still beauty to them, but the emphasis was on telling the story from the heart."
-- Joni Mitchell on Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf
