Product Description

Product Description


Veteran singer-pianist Shirley Horn demonstrates on You're My Thrill that her talent remains undimmed. While not as flexible as it was, her voice is still warm and assured. As for her piano playing, this is as confident and elegant as it ever was. Although the list of singer-pianists in jazz is quite small, it has also seen many outstanding artists. Horn has always been among the front-runners and this set ably demonstrates why this is so. With subtle keyboard touch and convincing interpretations of the lyrics, she presents with great flair an attractive selection of songs that are well known without being hackneyed. Her regular trio mates, bassist Charles Ables and drummer Steve Williams, are present on most tracks and on six songs they are augmented by a large orchestra, arranged and conducted by Johnny Mandel. Other instrumentalists make guest appearances but it is Shirley Horn's show all the way. --Bruce Crowther

The Horn/Mandel collaboration on 1992's "Here's to Life" is no less sublime, inspired, and miraculous than the best work of Sinatra/Riddle ("Only the Lonely") or Miles Davis/Gil Evans ("Sketches of Spain"). There's not a false note on that album, which for many listeners is the most essential recording of the past 20 years, if not since "Kind of Blue." "You're My Thrill" is certainly a worthy sequel, and some listeners may even prefer the walking bass tempos that appear on several tracks featuring just Shirley and rhythm section. But the high points, once again, are the nuanced harmonies and whispered counter melodies Mandel is able to incorporate with the trio's offerings--orchestrations that succeed not merely in being unobtrusive but actually contribute to the sense of silence, of meditative reflectiveness and suspended animation. Overall, the results on this collaboration are not quite as consistent and satisfying as on the earlier meeting, and there are far fewer spinetingling moments. Shirley's voice evidences a bit more strain, the song choices are not quite as surprising and revelatory (Peggy Lee's reading of "You're My Thrill" on the album "Black Coffee" is one for the ages), and the programming concept--going for a bit more "variety"--is not as daring. Pick this one up, but by no means should it be a priority over "Here's to Life."

Ten years since the release of the monumental "You Won't Forget Me," Shirely Horn has done it again, releasing a landmark album. Although she has released some very quality material throughout the past decade, "You're My Thrill" is exceptional. The 11-song CD features her usual repetoire of ballads interspersed with bouncy be-bop numbers, but what makes the album noteworthy from her other recent albums is the wall of sound producer Johnny Mandel provides. This quality makes both Horn's vocals and piano resonate. The new CD also echoes "Here's to Life," with Mandel's orchestra backing her vocals on six of the tracks.
Horn reaches deep into her early days by injecting some blues guitar into the mix, courtesy of Russell Malone, featured on the songs Sharing the Night With the Blues and Why Don't You Do Right? Her remake of I Got Lost in His Arms is magical, with Larry Bunker's vibes punctuating the end of each verse. Solitary Moon, My Heart Stood Still and the title track are gems, with the orchestra deliciously complementing Horn's masterful interpretation of the songs. The Best Is Yet to Come is a treat, with Horn and company's deft handling of swift chord changes. Finally, Horn's strong performance on All Night Long proves that her voice can still rise to the occasion and provides an appropriate climax to the CD.
Along with her trio -- drummer Steve Williams and Charles Ables, who shares bass duties with Brian Bromberg -- Shirley Horn provides us with her most powerful and enchanting album in years.

The more I listen to the new"You're My Thrill" cd, themore enchanted I become. Asit has already been written,Shirley manipulates and usessilence that can seem as though time is suspended.She truly is the artist's artist.To truly appreciate her talent, one needs to clearthe mind and free oneself ofdistractions and just listenBecome one with the music.Allow yourlself to hear eachnuance.This is an act of surrender. Let Shirley andher music wash over youand get inside you and moveyou totally. It will I assureyou. There is something to"get" with regard to Ms. Horn. You will get it, especially after a few listens.Once any preconceived ideasare out of the way and yourmind is completely open....this cd will add to yourlife and stay with you.You know...there aren't thatmany cd's out of all thatI have that I return to overand over....."Here's to Life"is one and so will this be. Shirley is matchedby Mr. Mandel's brilliantaccompaniment. NEVER is Shirley dominated by hisadded arrangements, yet what he adds is as fine andsilky as a very rare champagne.What else can I say...thiscd blows my mind. It IS thedrug!I am so happy to have beenintroduced to her by someone some years ago.I have several cds by herbut I must say I am partialto this one and "Here's toLife," also with stringsand horns.If you haven't purchased"You're my Thrill" yet,BUY IT NOW!!

This is the first cd of Shirley's I've bought since having the privilege of hearing her live. (Note: I have bought others, before the experience of hearing her live.) Thrilled isn't the word to describe how I felt upon learning she had a new cd out. I was deliciously pleased that she opened the cd with, and titled it after one of Billie Holiday's (another favorite vocalist of mine) best numbers. That's because something in Shirley's phrasing reminds often reminds me of Billie, though Shirley's style is all her own. Within the first few notes, she managed to make the song her own. Usually, I find myself drawn into achingly slow and sensual ballads (check out her version of "Do It Again" on her "I Love You, Paris" live cd), this time I was particularly pleased with the more upbeat numbers. On "The Best Is Yet to Come" Shirley proves she can swing with the best of 'em, and delivers considreable sass on "Why Don't You Do Right?". As for the ballads, it's hard to choose the best among them, but "My Heart Stood Still", "The Very Thought of You" and "All Night Long" are stand-outs here. My only small complaint is the use of strings in some songs, but that's my own personal prejudice. I much prefer Shirley in the setting of the small jazz combo, and the strings don't really marr anything here. This belongs in the collection of any jazz fan
