I just got home from doing some CD shopping, and turned on Shirley Horn's "May The Music Never End." As I type and listen - multi-tasking here - I can only say WOW! At age 70, Ms Horn is better than ever!
Joined by pianist extraordinaire, Ahmad Jamal, on four tracks, and flugelhornist Roy Hargrove, Ms. Horn sings in her distinctive, rich, soulful style. She is filled with love, emotional intensity - and is absolutely breathtaking! Shirley Horn is one of the few ballad singers who literally causes listeners' to hold their breath, as she weaves her spell, while the stories she sings unfold. She is a vocalist who has built her legend singing of heartbreak. And she can break your heart.
Her previous albums have received eight consecutive Grammy nominations. And this is one of her best ever. The twelve songs, filled with bittersweet longing, unrequited love, and love hard-won, include: Harold Arlen's classic "Ill Wind," Paul McCartney's and John Lennon's "Yesterday," Jacques Brel's brilliant "If You Go Away," Duke Ellington's "Take Love Easy," Michel LeGrand's "Watch What Happens," (with a bossa nova beat), and a bluesy version of "Forget Me."
This entire collection is heartfelt and top-notch! Shirley Horn, may your music never end!

This is without doubt the premier female jazz vocalist in the world at present. Here she is joined by the legendary pianist, Ahmad Jamal on two tracks and the trumpeter, Roy Hargrove another two tracks. Hargrove is making a habit of featuring on her albums lately features. Itis clear for all to see why she has asked him back as his playing is marked by both warmth and invention. The only drawback is the fact that Shirley Horn does not feature on piano with that job going to George Mesterhazy. The flavour is a little different and the loss of Charles Ables, her long time guitarist means the languid play associated with Shirley Horns Group is a bit varied. For all aspiring vocalists this is the place to come to learn what phrasing should be like in jazz. No doubt a class act.

Some have said that this album may be Shirley Horn's swansong. I most certainly hope not--this album is absolutely breath-taking! Long life to Shirley Horn! More, more, more... please!
