SCCD 31111 A Lazy Afternoon / Shirley Horn Trio
Here is a classic example of SteepleChase’s “re-discovery” endeavour. This is Miss Shirley Horn’s first recording on SteepleChase after a long absence from the recording studio.
Lazy Afternoon turned out to be a tremendous success critically and commercially and together with her three subsequent releases on the label (All Night Long – SCCD 31157, Viloets For Your Furs – SCCD 31164, Garden Of The Blues – SCCD 31203) had firmly established her as a major artist.
