Born in Baltimore in 1915, and dead too early in New York in 1959, Billie Holiday became a legendary jazz singer. With her voice even now managing to touch so many people, we follow a reporter on the trail of the artist on behalf of a New York daily.

Beyond the public scandals that marred the life of the star (alcohol, drugs, violence...), the reporter seeks to restore the truth to its rightful place by revisiting the memory of Billie.

Muñoz and Sampayo trace the slow drift downwards of a singer who expressed her deepest emotions through jazz – whilst noting the undertones of racism stirred up in the wake of the blues,

Featuring Munoz’ strikingly raw heavy blacks, this is not just a biography but a spell-binding art book tribute.
