This release contains Shirley Horn’s ultra rare 1961 live performance at the Gaslight Square, in Saint Louis (wrongly presented on a long out of print LP as having been taped at the Village Vanguard). In addition to her vocals, she is also featured here on piano backed only by bass and drums. As a bonus, we have included Horn’s complete 1962 album Loads of Love (Mercury SR-60761), boasting such stars as Gerry Mulligan, Al Cohn, Hank Jones and Kenny Burrell, plus three tunes featuring Shirley on vocals from a long session she made with violinist Stuff Smith in 1959.
Live at the Gaslight Square, St. Louis, August, 1961.
