“Tribute To The Lady - Billie Holiday” by Sam Cooke - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1959Album Chart of the Decade: 1950s

TJR says

Sam’s third album for Keen Records, issued in April 1959. The concept looks good on paper; one soulful African American pays tribute to another. The reality says differently; sophisticated jazz ballad tedium for middle of the road bores. Count me out…
