I'm listening to Terri Gross replaying an in-studio appearance by Shirley Horn who died earlier this week.
What an amazing interpreter of lyrics. One of my longstanding disagreements with The Dragon is over jazz singers. He's always been more about the set at hand and the synergistic release when a band clicks . . . perfectly valid and real and right.
But still, she just sang It Had To Be You and I was blown away. Rest in Peace Ms. Horn.
Go in Peace
