Frank Sinatra called Billie Holiday his single greatest musical influence—and he wasn’t alone; no less than Sarah Vaughan, Anita O’Day and Dinah Washington, and countless others, claim “Lady Day” as a formative influence. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the jazz icon’s birth (April 7, 1915), pianist Lara Downes remembers Holiday with solo transcriptions of songs Lady Day made famous, including “God Bless the Child,” “I Cover the Waterfront,” “Strange Fruit,” “Solitude” and “But Beautiful.” Solo piano transcriptions by Jed Distler. Supported by a generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation

‘SOME OTHER TIME’: Barber, Copland, Bernstein and Foss Zuill Bailey, cellist; Lara Downes, pianist (Steinway & Sons) “Simple Gifts” is the title of a Shaker song from the mid-1800s here arranged for cello and piano, but it could also serve as the title of this luscious, moody and dreamy recording of American songs, many of which just happen to pose as instrumental works by Bernstein, Barber, Foss and others. Zuill Bailey’s soulful cello and Lara Downes’s clean and sensitive piano playing prove perfect travel mates. (Fonseca-Wollheim)

A mixture of playfulness and poetry informs Mr. Fairouz’s “Piano Miniatures,” a collection of short pieces in which he tries out different compositional devices or jots down personal memories. The collection is a work in progress; here the pianist Lara Downes performed Nos. 1 to 11 with loving attention to mood and color and a gift for telling stories in a tightly compressed form.
