Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Shirley Horn

Live At The 4 Queens

2016-11-28

I have to say that i love these kinds of Jazz albums. It was recorded at the 4 Queens in Vegas back in 1988, and it certainly has that cigar lounge feel to it. Something you can just put on, relax, and listen to the whole album without missing a beat. I ended up listening to it a couple of times. This album also comes with a 56 page book of some unpublished photos, essays, and interviews. Pretty cool thing to do as a lot of artists nowadays just don't take the time to add that in. I really liked tracks 2,3,6, and 8 the most on the album, and they do a methodical cover of "The Boy From Ipanema" as well. Enjoyed it quite a bit.
