Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits

Lady Day and her dog

I’ve been listening to a lot of blues lately and nobody sang the blues with more heart than Lady Day, the legendary Billie Holiday. I just found this photo of Billie and her boxer Mister.

One doesn’t often find pictures of Billie smiling, but I guess the love of a good dog can make anyone happy.

One thought on “Lady Day and her dog

  1. Kevin Croitz on said:

    I adore Miss Lady Day, the beautiful sadness of her life, I remember driving around Tampa in the late 80’s in my little beatup Toyota, listening to her, or going over to the Hub and playing her on the Jukebox over and over again, while sipping a whiskey straight, she sang the blues but didnt like to be considered a blues singer, she considered herself a Jazz Singer and in opinion the greatest one.
