Lena Horne - Stormy Weather
ITEM#: 12451669Personnel includes: Lena Horne (vocals); Lennie Hayton, Marty Paich (conductor); Hymie Schertzer, Danny Bank, Romeo Penque, Al Cohn, Toots Mondello, Bud Shank, Herb Geller (saxophone); Charlie Shavers, Shorty Baker, Jimmy Maxwell, Doc Severinsen, Ernie Royal, Harry "Sweets" Edison, Don Fagerquist (trumpet); Jimmy Cleveland, Urbie Green, Chauncey Welsh (trombone); Gene Di Novi (piano); Kenny Burrell, Howard Roberts, Al Viola (guitar); George Duvivier (bass); Joe Marshall, Jr., John Cresci, Shelley Manne (drums). Producers: E.O. Walker, Joe Carlton, Dennis Farnon, Henri Rene, Dick Pierce. Recorded at Webster Hall, New York, New York 1956 & 1957. Originally released on RCA (1375). Includes liner notes by Farah Griffin. All tracks have been digitally remastered. This is part of Bluebird's First Editions series. One of Lena Horne's finest studio outings, 1957's STORMY WEATHER (not to be confused with other similarly named releases) features the Brooklyn-born singer at the height of her powers. On these sessions--conducted by either her husband, Lennie Hayton, or Marty Paich--Horne's vibrant vocals hold their own against the top-notch backing band, which includes guitarist Kenny Burrell and trumpeters Doc Severinsen and Harry "Sweets" Edison, among others. Horne's exuberance is palpable on every track; even on typically downbeat tunes such as "Summertime"--here given a slinky, sensual rendition--the strikingly beautiful vocalist charms with her bold, vital performances. Other highlights include a disarmingly boisterous version of the title track, Horne's signature song, and a bright, swinging take on the carefree "Just One of Those Things." For those seeking an individual Horne album, rather than one of many excellent collections, Bluebird's 2002 reissue of STORMY WEATHER is a perfect selection.
