“THANKS FOR EVERYTHING,” WRITES BILLIE

I offer these signatures as correctives . . .

“Correctives to what?” you might ask.  To the people who find JAZZ LIVES as part of their search for “billie holiday drugs” or “billie holiday nude.”

I’d prefer to think of Miss Holiday this way, her voice full of dramatic arching passion that none of her emulators has ever captured.  We should be thanking her:

May your happiness increase!
