Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Unreleased, original remastered concert recording! In January 1954, twelve American musicians traveled to Europe under the tour title "Jazz Club USA," named after Leonard Feather's radio show. Having had an encounter with her abusive husband the evening prior, Billie Holiday appeared onstage in Cologne wearing dark sunglasses, and the repertoire included a song written by her entitled "I Love My Man" (a.k.a. "Billie's Blues"). The singer may have been battered by her disastrous life, but she was nevertheless able to move her audience.
