AllMusic Review by

Lady Day Swings! collects some of the legendary songstress' best-known swing performances, including "What a Little Moonlight Can Do," "Nice Work If You Can Get It," "Them There Eyes," and "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm." Culled from the Lady Day: The Complete Billie Holiday on Columbia box set, this compilation offers a more focused -- and, arguably, easily digested -- way to explore how Holiday brought her own personal experiences to her work. "Miss Brown to You," "A Fine Romance," and the other tracks here showcase the playfully alluring side of her work. A casual or new fan looking to explore the lively, charming aspects of Holiday's work would be wise to investigate Lady Day Swings!
