    here's a favorite of mine...

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0677H1EPdB0&feature]I've got my love to keep me warm Bllie Holiday - YouTube[/ame]

    and a modern-jazz version that came along later, with a much more mature Billie H...

    I know it's goofy and old-fashioned, but this is my favorite version of this tune...

    Get past her kind of chubby appearance and just sit back and listen.

    This is a very recent discovery of mine. But I like the edge to her voice.

    I also like the performers backing her vocals.
