CD Reviews

Favorite Horn
disco75 | State College, PA United States | 08/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This disc has the trademark Horn stylings, including her inimitable pace and phrasing. It is the most upbeat of her usually ballad-dominated discs, giving off a smoking heat and bluesy tinge that mark this record as unique amidst her notable ouevre. The immediacy of the recording process pays off in the feel of the album. She is a singer par excellence and a talented pianist. This disc is highly recommended."
Sensational Horn!
Carlos from Rio | 12/12/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an incredible effort! The best Horn CD in my collection. Her version of "Look of Love" by far trumps the Krall version of the same name. I can best characterize the CD as bluesy, not over produced, and simply a palpable joy to listen to. The set up piece on track 1 just seems out of place given the ballad / rather maudlin context of the work. Highly recommended."
What Tasty Ingredient Has Made Shirley Horn the Great!
Carlos from Rio | Rio de Janeiro, RJ Brazil | 07/08/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Would it be her Debussy-like piano? Or the formula trio+voice with those downtempo lazy and full of silence tracks? Do you remember "Fever" as a song commonly and definitely associated to Peggy Lee or even Elvis Presley? Do you remember "The Look of Love" as a song timely linked to Sergio Mendes & Brazil'66 or even the composer Burt Bacharach rendition? Now listen to Ms.Horn's takes. There's also a delightful "Peel Me A Grape". Her formula is forever. All stars."
