JAZZforum: A Celebration of the Life and Music of Shirley Horn

April 13, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Daughter Rainy Smith will share insights both personal and professional and provide a rare perspective on the remarkable career of one of Washington, DC’s premier musicians-Shirley Horn (1934-2005). The 1998 Grammy Award winner for Best Jazz Vocal Performance and 2005 National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master was known for her unique style as singer and pianist. Her many recordings and performances established her as a world-class artist whose roots, however, were firmly grounded in Washington, DC. Vocalist and educator Jessica Boykin-Settles, who has presented her Tribute to Shirley Horn throughout the area, and WPFW broadcaster and jazz historian Rusty Hassan will join us for this special evening of remembrances.
