Title: Blue Holiday

A talented and expressive jazz vocalist who recorded in the 1950’s to great reviews but poor record sales, Johnny Holiday was nonetheless an artist with a distinct, natural style. A case in point would be “Blue Holiday,” Johnny’s 1961 album originally released on the small Contract Records label, where Johnny’s mellow voice inhabits the songs with a slow burning intensity and a genuine intimacy usually reserved for a smoky late night performance in a small club. The song selections are outstanding as well; from the sultry standard “You Don’t Know What Love Is,” which begins the album, to Rodgers & Hammerstein’s beautiful ballad “It Might as Well Be Spring” which ends the album, “Blue Holiday” delivers on all fronts. All selections have been newly remastered.
