by José Muñoz and Carlos Sampayo
Afterword by Stanley Crouch
1993, Fantagraphics Books
56 pages, 81/2" x 11"
The art of José Muñoz has never been better than in the fifty pages he produced here, and while working within the confines of the legend of Billie Holiday, Carlos Sampayo managed with this graphic novel to write a story that is much more than simply another retelling of one of the many myths surrounding one of the greatest musical performers in the history of recorded music, that is instead a moving and meaningful tale of the high price that was paid to bring to life the music that first defined America in the 20th century: Jazz.
