Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying...

Some singers say more with a pause than others can with hours of lyrics. Such a singer, such an enchantress, was Shirley Horn, who passed on yesterday at 71. She was the ultimate 'Life Begins at 50' girl, truly hitting her prime after raising her family and re-focusing on piano and composition. From 1990 onward, she released a series of flawless albums, gems of intimacy and intensity. Measured and subtle but searingly effective, Shirley was a 'sui generis,' one of a kind. I have a lot of her wonderful music on record. Just drop me a line if you'd like a sample. Peace.
