Album Review

This live set (recorded at Hollywood's Vine St. Bar and Grill) was Shirley Horn's "comeback" album after many years in which she purposely maintained a low profile as she raised her daughter. Typical of Horn's music ever since, she sings intimate ballads with her trio (which includes bassist Charles Ables and drummer Steve Williams) and plays very effective piano behind her vocals, taking "Isn't It Romantic" as an instrumental.

I thought about you

Shirley Horn's treatment of standards Estate and I Thought About You are fabulously done. But the real gem of this live L.A. jazz club recording is the well known bossa nova Quiet Nights. Though often recorded it's never been done quite like this by anyone before. It's the only full instrumental on the album. The trio sets up the tune with a groovin' vamp intro that sets the mood for what's about to come. You'd be hard pressed to find another jazz piano player that projects this combination of artistry, soul, and technical prowess that Shirley plays on Quiet Nights. It alone is more than worth the cost of the album. Enjoy!

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....
