SCCD 31203 The Garden Of The Blues / Shirley Horn Trio

This is a recording form the concert dedicated to the late songwriter Curtis Lewis who was one of the first black composers and lyricists to emerge on the Broadway scene in the early 40s.

Shirley Horn has one of the most alluring voices in jazz – she lets the lyrics melt into a violet haze as she slowly unwraps the melody – and

she’s an exceptional pianist…a wonderful, moving combination of voice and song .” (Cash Box)
