Gigging in Canada, Cairo and Tahiti, and covering such diverse genres as lounge, country, and Latin, Lily Frost has developed into a versatile performer with the experience to do justice to her latest project, a tribute to the music of Billie Holiday. “Lily Swings” has a distinct alt-country feel and the live-off-the-floor recording technique gives it an upbeat, Saturday night dance hall vibe as opposed to a dark, smoky jazz club mood one might expect.
- excerpt from Wholenote Magazine review, July 2008
Infectious and charming are the best words to describe this CD. The talented singer-songwriter whose original music has been heard on TV shows such as Grey's Anatomy, brings new and fresh interpretations to classic songs from the great American songbook made famous by the legendary Billie Holiday. Backed by a great band and arrangements that recall the heyday of swing - with just a hint of western swing, Lily blends a period feel with a contemporary sensibility. This recording appeals to both veteran jazz fans and a young contemporary audience.
Lily says: "The songs are choices from lesser-known Billie Holiday repertoire. They are ones that really resonate with me and work well with an upbeat swing band. We recorded my favorite way: live. It was really fun to play with The Dukes again. I used to sing with them back in 1993 when Ray called me 'kid'."
