Format: Audio CD
There's no one on earth who can tell a story in song better than Shirley Horn, who can turn the quietest whisper into a powerful narrative moment, and in this CD, in which she sings about the many aspects of love, she is brilliant. Recorded in 1990, this was her first #1 jazz album in a career which she had postponed from the early sixties till late seventies, while she was bringing up her children. Always one of Miles Davis's favorite singers, she invites him here as a guest soloist.

Horn is a complete musician, and on this CD, she has planned every aspect of the recording. Having done all the arrangements and selected each soloist for his specific talents on specific songs, she ensures that the totality is exactly the interpretation she has in mind. Miles Davis is guest soloist on the title song, "You Won't Forget Me," Wynton Marsalis guests on "Don't Let the Sun Catch Me Crying," Toots Thielemans makes the harmonica a dramatically emotional instrument in "Beautiful Love," Branford Marsalis's sax complements her range and voice on "It Had to Be You," and Buck Hill and Horn become a musical unit on "Foolin' Myself."

Horn takes as much time as she needs for her interpretations throughout the recording. Paying no heed to the common length of CD tracks, she ranges here from almost nine minutes on the wonderful "If You Go" to less than two and a half minutes on "I Just Found Out About Love," which is upbeat, celebratory, and loud, with a strong drum base. Her selections vary from the quiet and dramatic "The Music That Makes Me Dance," in which she uses pauses and silence to emphasize the lyrics--"HIS is the only music that makes me dance,"--to the bluesy "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Cryin,'" with Wynton Marsalis--"You done me dirty now, and I just don't want you no more.

A wonderful discovery- my vocal album of the year.
I hadn't heard of Shirley Horn: this album was recommended in Stereophile (US hi-fi magazine)
Shirley has a wonderfully rich, sensuous voice, tender, playful, or bluesy in turn.
She is also a great pianist.
Accompanied by regular trio members Charles Ables (bass) and Billy Hart (drums) and a stellar lineup of guest soloists including Brantford & Wynton Marsalis, Toots Thielemans, and ( on the title track) Miles Davis, Shirley has delivered a great album for late night relaxation.
Recording and sound quality are outstanding.
Very highly recommended.

Shirley at her very best - with amazing artists joining her on several tracks - Wynton and Brandford Marsalis both feature - not to mention Miles himself!
