Shirley Horn

The Wonderful Shirley Horn
Shirley Horn Although she is sadly gone now, and greatly missed, she is certainly one of the greats of the idiom. Shirley Horn's music is centered on her singing, in a fairly low register and a traditional blues-jazz style, and her piano playing, which is technically accomplished. Her repertoire includes original compositions and standards drawn mostly from classic rock, including "Ode to Billie Joe," "A Taste of Honey," and "Black Magic Woman." Although she could swing as strongly as any straight-ahead jazz artist, her reputation rode on her exquisite ballad work.

Patrica Barber Patricia Barber Her music is centered on her singing, in a fairly low register and a traditional blues-jazz style, and her piano playing, which is technically accomplished. She is known for imbuing her songs with intelligence and a wide and unusual vocabulary, which results in complex and witty lyrics.
