Love Songs (2005) by Lena Horne
Released: Jan 2000
Label: Rca/Legacy
Solid overview of the lovely Lena's late 1950s early '60s RCA sessions arranged by such modernist jazz stalwarts as Ralph Burns, Marty Paich and husband Lennie Hayton. One of Horne's major strength is her way of balancing her salty, borderline defiant tone with her attention to the narrative of the lyric. Her reading of "Love Me Or Leave Me" is definitive.
