Shirley Horn

September 16, 2019. Resonance Records has proven to be a jazz powerhouse when it comes to new releases and never-before released vintage material. Sing A Song of Jazz: The Best of Vocal Jazz on Resonance truly celebrates the power of lyrical jazz, whether it was recorded in 1956 or 2019.

 

Known for her distinctive singing, which she did most often from the keyboard, Shirley Horn studied classical music before turning to jazz in the 1950s.  In the early '60s she caught the attention of Miles  Davis, and then her career started to take off.
