Description

Recorded Live at The Four Queens Hotel in Las Vegas on May 2nd, 1988 (the day after her 54th birthday), this never-before-released sparkling set by the angora-voiced jazz singer and pianist Shirley Horn captures her at the very beginning of her resurgence on the jazz scene.

This is the first set of previously unreleased Shirley Horn music to be issued in over 10 years and features Horn's classic rhythm section of 25 years - Charles Ables on bass and Steve Williams on drums.

This release boasts re-mastered audio from the original tapes, and a host of notable liner note essays by acclaimed jazz writer James Gavin, vocalist Sheila Jordan, daughter Rainy Smith, manager Sheila Mathis, jazz radio DJ Rusty Hassan (from her hometown of Washington DC), producers Richard Seidel and JP Allard, and more.

Music lovers of all kinds will be delighted when they pick up this CD.

"Songs are lucky when Shirley Horn chooses them.'' - Jon Pareles, The New York Times
