 ‘Horn's taste is impeccable, her conviction contagious, and when she sings a lyric . . . we accept it as pure gospel.’ - Vanity Fair

Renowned for her inimitable ability to negotiate melodies and lyrics at an exquisitely unhurried pace, Shirley Horn applies her unique alchemy to classic and contemporary songs. When Shirley Horn sings a song, she changes the way we hear it forever.

This never-before-released sparkling set recorded live on May 2n, 1988, at The Four Queens Hotel, captures the angora-voiced jazz singer and pianist at the very beginning of her resurgence on the jazz scene.

2xHD Mastering by: René Laflamme and André Perry

2xHD Executive Producer: André Perry


For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips NAB master tape was played on a Nagra-T modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Telefunken EF806 tube. The Nagra T has one of the best transports ever made, having four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head.   

We did an analog transfer for each high-res sampling and A & B comparisons were made with the original LP, using the KRONOS turntable with a BLACK BEAUTY tone arm.   


Each format (96kHz, 192kHz, DSD2.8mHz and DSD5.6mHz) was created using Merging Horus/Hapi A/D converter, calibrated to the required format, and a dCS Vivaldi clock  

2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme.
