Bebop Spoken There

Was Lena Horne a jazz singer? Was Sinatra? Who cares? They were both artists who transcended categories.
Lena's death on Sunday May 9 at the age of 92 marked the passing of one of the truly great entertainers - I guess there's just about only Tony Bennett left. Although I never saw Lena Horne live I have memories of her singing so many good songs in so many not so good movies.
"Honeysuckle Rose" - from the movie 'Thousands Cheer' my personal fave.
