The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

Shirley Horn

Air Date: 5/15/2022 

If someone asked you to name one or two famous female jazz singers who also play piano, you might think of Diana Krall or Eliane Elias. But you wouldn't want to omit Shirley Horn, whose piano playing was noted by Johnny Mandel as being comparable to that of Bill Evans.

To me, merely playing the piano seems to require two brains, one for the left hand and one for the right. But then, to do that so well, and on top of that to sing very well - well, that's really something. 

The first set of the morning closes with Ms. Horn singing on  Benny Golson's 2001 CD One Day, Forever, a beautifully crafted release and also one of the better ones to listen to Ms. Horn, in terms of sound quality. 

Later during the hour, you'll hear a rare track featuring Miles Davis. It is said that Miles brought a degree of fame to Shirley Horn, as at one point early in her career  he asked her to play during intermission at his gigs. 

You'll hear at least one Shirley Horn track in each hour, with more in the first two hours. I hope you enjoy this wonderful artist on the next edition of the Sunday Jazz Brunch.
