Lena Horne

We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Lena Horne, the great singer and actress who broke down racial barriers throughout her remarkable career to achieve international fame. The last three albums of her career were released on EMI’s Blue Note Records between 1994 and 1998.

“She was of the great jazz singers, right up there with Sarah and Ella,” said Bruce Lundvall, Chairman Emeritus of EMI’s Blue Note Records. “It was such an honor to have her on Blue Note to make her final recordings. She was a joy to work with.”

“We’ll Be Together Again,” “An Evening with Lena Horne” and “Being Myself” were released on Blue Note between 1994 and 1998. Horne, who named Billy Strayhorn as her biggest musical influence and one of her closest friends, also contributed vocals to three songs on Simon Rattle’s “Classic Ellington” album (Blue Note, 2000). In 2006, her longtime musical director and guitarist Rodney Jones compiled the retrospective collection “Seasons of a Life” from Horne’s Blue Note recordings.
