Płyta Shirley Horn musiała zrobić wielkie wrażenie na samym Milesie Davisie, skoro postawił właścicielom Village Vanguard jeden warunek dotyczący jego koncertu w tym kultowym nowojorskim klubie - "albo wystąpi z Shirley Horn, albo nie wystąpi wcale"
Narracja "Embers and Ashes" płynie w leniwym tempie, nie narzuca się, ale przy bliższym poznaniu oferuje wielkie bogactwo drugiego i trzeciego planu. Przestrzenna "He Never Mentioned Love", zastygająca jak lawa "I Thought About You", czy szalenie nieoczywista wersja "God Bless the Child" zapadają głęboko w pamięć. To spójna opowieść rozgrywająca się na terytorium "znanym i lubianym", jednak jazzowe standardy zyskują tutaj drugie życie, wszystko tu jest zaaranżowane gustownie, oszczędnie i pachnie na kilometr oryginalnością

Płyta Shirley Horn musiała zrobić wielkie wrażenie na samym Milesie Davisie, skoro postawił właścicielom Village Vanguard jeden warunek dotyczący jego koncertu w tym kultowym nowojorskim klubie - "albo wystąpi z Shirley Horn, albo nie wystąpi wcale".
Po latach historia przyznała jemu rację, dzisiaj Shirley Horn stawiana jest na równi z wielkimi damami jazzu, jak Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington i Sarah Vaughan, co w 1960 roku nie było jeszcze jasne. Wspólny występ w Village Vanguard zaowocował zaproszeniem przez Milesa do sesji nagraniowej ścieżki dźwiękowej do filmu "For Love Of Ivy" (1968).

Limitowana wersja winylowa został wyposażona w dwa bonusy, dwie kompozycje George'a i Iry Gershwinów - I Loves You, Porgy" i "A Foggy Day", nagranych z udziałem legendarnego, a zapomnianego już skrzypka Stuffa Smitha.

Editor's Info:
Embers and Ashes is the debut studio album by jazz vocalist and pianist Shirley Horn, released in 1960 by Stere-O-Craft Records.
In the same year, the album fell into the hands of trumpeter Miles Davis, who invited Horn to perform with him at the Village Vanguard jazz club, setting the club's management a condition: either he would perform with Horn, or he would not at all.
After the performance, Horn was noticed and offered to sign a contract by representatives of Mercury Records.
Shirley Horn (1934-2005) is considered one of the great jazz singers of the nineteen fifties and sixties, often compared to Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughan. Her outstanding career would span over fifty years. Shirley’s voice was smooth and expressive, but never hurried. She was one of the slowest singers in jazz. Embers and Ashes was her first album under her own name. Although she was only 26-years old at this time, much of the richness in her music was already present. 180-gram VIRGIN VINYL LIMITED EDITION of 1000 COPIES. The Complete Album + 2 Bonus Tracks.

For fans of Shirley Horn's superslow ballad singing, Christmas has come early in the form of this digitally remastered twofer. It brings together Horn's first album under her own name, Embers and Ashes (previously only available on LP) and Where Are You Going, which has previously been issued on CD. Subtitled Songs of Lost Love Sung by Shirley Horn, Embers and Ashes attracted the attention and praise of no less a personage than Miles Davis, who was hardly known for his critical generosity towards fellow musicians. Indeed, so impressed was Davis when he heard the album that he asked Horn to open for him at the Village Vanguard in New York, a date which also led to her singing on the film soundtrack of For Love Of Ivy (1968). There are untold riches on offer here, including the amazing sense of space created by ‘He NeverMentioned Love’, the stretching out into infinity of the final word of each line of ‘I Thought About You’, a typically fresh slant on ‘God Bless The Child’, and the remarkable phrasing on the Curtis Lewis penned ‘Blue City’. The reverb might occasionally sound a little too cavernous for some ears, but the singing sweeps all before it. Listening to Horn's phrasing on songs such as ‘Something Happens To Me’ and ‘Do It Again’ from Where Are You Going, you realise just how much of an influence she was on Diana Krall. ‘A Foggy Day’ is included as a bonus track, one of the tunes from an all-Gershwin album recorded by Stuff Smith in 1959 on which Horn sang and played piano. On the original recording John Eaton is credited as the pianist (Eaton was present at the session and played on two of the album's 11 tracks), although Stuff Smith himself has confirmed that it was actually Horn on piano duties for most of the date.
