  • Shirley Horn passed last week

    I wasn't online much to post it, but jazz-great, Shirley Horn passed away last Thursday. Word did not really get out until the weekend.

    NY Newsday article.

    I got turned on to Shirley in 1990. I bought her, then new, release, "You Wont Forget Me" on cassette and worked that thing down to nothing. I got nearly every release after that. Her style was so intimate. This makes me very sad.

    I'm going back to my beginnings, and she's right ... I wont forget her. A great piano jazz trio, even before she sings a word.

    "Foyt's mere presence is a punch in the face, an inoculation against milquestoast corporatism. There wasn't a car anywhere anyhow anytime that Foyt wouldn't put the boot to, and there hasn't been a race devised he couldn't win."
    - Jeff MacGregor, Sunday Money
