Peggy Lee & Shirley Horn: “Cool & Mellow”

The second class will examine the lives and work of these two ultra-cool ladies of song. Renaissance woman Peggy Lee was a successful actor, composer and poet as well as one of the most popular singers in the history of jazz. Shirley Horn, one of the few female jazz vocalists of her day who was also an accomplished instrumentalist, was known for her smoky contralto voice and devastating way with a ballad.
