The Poll Winners label is devoted to the reissue of albums that received the maximum 5-Star review ratings in the iconic jazz magazine DownBeat, this release presents, for the frst time ever on a single set, all surviving performances by the great Billie Holiday at Carnegie Hall, covering the years 1946 to 1956

The frst CD begins with her most celebrated Carnegie Hall set, taped on November 10, 1956 and released on the album The Essential Billie Holiday - Carnegie Hall Concert (Verve V-8410), followed by all of her other preserved recordings at that venue, some of them only rarely heard. As a bonus, they have added a rare radio show (November 8, 1956) on which Billie sings the lyrics to three of her songs without accompaniment and interviewed about her upcoming Carnegie Hall concert. The closing bonus, also previously unissued, features Billie a few days after the concert relaxing during a party at Leonard Feather's home and singing a unique vocal duet with Helen Merrill with piano accompaniment by their host.

2CD Set + 6 bonus tracks and a 20-page comprehensive booklet.
