Lena Horne (1917-2010)
I didn’t have much computer access for the past few days so I couldn’t post on Lena Horne on Monday. I don’t think I’ve ever seen any of her films. I only saw her on Sanford and Son and The Cosby Show. However I did listen to her music as a child. The first song I recall is Where and When. I can even sing part of it. As a kid I thought it was about reincarnation.
Lena Horne recorded a fantastic dance track very late in her career. The song was called “Where Is My Baby?” (still available via downloads) It contained all her vocal trademarks, the throaty growl, the pouty style and of course the purr!
