    Jazz pianist and singer Shirley Horn learned to play the piano in her grandmother’s parlor in Washington D.C. Her first record, Embers and Ashes, was released in 1960. She had been performing in relative obscurity until 1961, when Miles Davis invited her to open for him at the Village Vanguard. Despite her flourishing reputation and an exception vocal ability with poignant slow ballads, Horn elected to leave the music scene behind to devote herself to motherhood until her early 50s when she reemerged onto the Jazz world and cemented her reputation as a top notch musician. Shirley remarkable talents are captured on the DVD ‘Antonio Carlos Jobim: An All-Star Tribute’ and the Benny Golson album ‘One Day Forever.’
