Shirley Horn


I just stumbled on Shirley Horn yesterday. I don't think I had ever even heard of her before.
She was most noted for her ability to accompany herself with nearly incomparable independence and ability on the piano while singing, something described by arranger Johnny Mandel as "like having two heads."
That  possibly could have been expressed more delicately Mr Mandel, but it is right on the button.
