Album Review

Jazz 'Round Midnight is an enjoyable budget-priced sampler of 14 songs from Shirley Horn's stint at Verve. While this collection is hardly definitive, it is quite enjoyable, sporting an appealingly low-key, seductive atmosphere and several dynamite performances, including versions of "A Time for Love," "Fever," "Loving You," "How Long Has This Been Going On?," "I Wanna Be Loved," "So I Love You" and "The Meaning of the Blues."
