Album Review

This Shirley Horn CD is a little unusual, as it was recorded at her home. The four sessions utilized some of her favorite musicians, including bassists Steve Novosel and Charles Ables; drummers Steve Williams, Elvin Jones, and Billy Hart; trumpeter Roy Hargrove (on "The Meaning of the Blues") and Joe Henderson; and Buck Hill on tenors. As usual, virtually all of the songs are taken at slow tempos, with "All or Nothing at All" given a definitive treatment. Other highlights include "The Look of Love," "Fever," and Henderson's playing on "You Go to My Head."

Customer Reviews


I love jazz music and I am always looking to find someone new since my collection isn't that vast. I love sarah, elle,nancy, billie, diane krall. The interesting thing is when I hear Shirley Horn voice Diane Krall came to mind. I can hear that Miss Horn was someone she admired. Diane coverd some of her songs. Well, I just know of two, Peel me a grape and The look of Love ( which has been ccovered before). Great cd. Ear kandi. Smooth and elegant sound. The musician are amazing.

A superior ballad singer and a talented pianist, Shirley Horn put off potential success until finally becoming a major attraction while in her fifties. She studied piano from the age of four. After attending Howard University, Horn put together her first trio in 1954, and was encouraged in the early '60s by Miles Davis and Quincy Jones. She recorded three albums during 1963-1965 for Mercury and ABC/Paramount, but chose to stick around Washington, D.C., and raise a family instead of pursuing her career....
