By 13 March, suffering from stabbing pains in the stomach, he returned to New York. On the transatlantic flight, as the varicose veins in his oesophagus split, he started vomiting blood. Surviving an agonising eight-hour trip, Lester arrived at his New York hotel, the Alvin, and resumed drinking in his room, which faced Birdland. After sinking into unconsciousness, he momentarily awoke, sluggishly moving his fingers and lips as if playing the saxophone. Then he slipped away. And just last year, the Afro-American poet Kamau Daaoud recorded Balm of Gilead (for Billie Holiday and Lester Young) for his album Leimert Park. Today Daaoud explains that their friendship arose from this common understanding of the nature of the world that they lived, and the nature of the pain they had to struggle through to do what they had to do.

Eleanora Fagan (April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959), better known as Billie Holiday, was an American jazz singer with a career spanning nearly thirty years. Nicknamed "Lady Day" by her friend and music partner Lester Young, Holiday had a seminal influence on jazz music and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo

Throughout, Billie is backed by her friend, tenor saxophone player Lester Young, leading a variety of small groups, each consisting of a who's who of the best jazz musicians of the period. The result is 24 gems, polished by the discipline imposed by the 3 minute playing length per side of the 78 rpm shellac. I can't confirm that this is the best album by Billie Holiday and Lester Young but I can tell you that it is brilliant. I think this is what it sounds like in heaven. The combination of Lester Young's saxophone and Billie Holiday's voice together with some terrific support is magical. 3 people found this helpful.

Lester Young and Billie Holiday were the Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris of the jazz world. The music the two of them made together was so achingly beautiful and so perfectly in synch it seemed impossible that they were not lovers. As with Gram and Emmylou, the exact nature of their relationship remains somewhat enigmatic. Young was the one who gave the nickname "Lady Day" to Holiday and she in turn called him "Prez".
