Album Review

Shirley Horn continues in a formula that has become very popular for her. De-emphasizing her piano, Horn sings one very slow ballad after another. The intimate music, which features her trio members, percussionist Alex Acuna and most prominently the keyboards and orchestrations of George Mesterhazy, has very little variety and should be listened to in small doses. Horn's singing is full of subtle emotion and sensuality, particularly on such numbers as Jobim's "Someone To Light Up My Life," Lil Green's "In The Dark," "Kiss And Run" and "The Island," but no real surprises occur and the consistently dreamy mood has the potential to become quite sleepy.
