To me Shirley Horn is a kind of Jekyll & Hyde within the Jazz. I find hard to decide what I like most about her: her velvety ballads or her cheeky and funny songs. Another thing that amazes me is that she reached spectacular levels of virtuosity both on vocals and on the piano, playing while singing. I can't say if she was better as a singer or as a pianist. I bring two songs: a ballad (John Williams conducts the orchestra) and a funny song with his trio ever.
