Shirley Horn: With StringsƒHereÍs to Life



Shirley Horn, like Diana Krall who followed her onto the Verve artist roster, possessed equal talent as both a singer and self-accompanying pianist. This album accentuates Ms. Horn’s best attribute as a singer, that of ballad interpreter. With her trio in tow, a guest appearance by Wynton Marsalis and colorful arrangements by the highly accomplished Johnny Mandel, this date is a most pleasurable listen. Eleven tracks include “Here’s to Life” and “How Am I To Know?” Total Time: 62 minutes
