About Shirley Horn

Shirley Valerie Horn (1934-2005) was an American jazz singer and pianist. She was born and raised in Washington, DC. Aged 12, she studied piano and composition at Howard University, later graduating from there in classical music. She became enamored with the U Street jazz area of Washington, sneaking into jazz clubs before she was of legal age. She was most noted for her ability to accompany herself with nearly incomparable independence and ability on the piano while singing and for her rich, lush voice, a smoky contralto, which was described by noted producer and arranger Quincy Jones as "like clothing, as she seduces you with her voice."
