This is a pretty cool project by beatmaker L’Orange. He made an album with Billie Holiday samples and it works so nicely I think. He has given his music away for free too which is incredible. Check the link here . I’m not familiar with Billie holidays work, only heard a few songs shes performed such as ‘Strange Fruit’ which is an incredibly morbid song, but fit perfectly in the time it was done.
The beats are mellow and go well with the samples, I encourage you to check out his other albums too, given away for free on the site.
