This CD reissue brings back a historic session, vocalist/pianist Shirley Horn's last before she drifted into semi-retirement so she could raise her daughter. Her sidemen on this date include trumpeter Joe Newman, flutists Frank Wess and Jerome Richardson, and guitarist Kenny Burrell, but the main star throughout is Horn. Not all of the material is equally strong and none of the very concise dozen performances clocks in at even three minutes, so this is not an essential session. But Shirley Horn fans and completists will want the generally enjoyable vocal date.
