This is an absolute MUST HAVE.
Joe Hill
Her phrasing, intonation, her sense of time, her immaculate diction and just the way she puts over the song as a whole.

This is one of the Lena Horne recordings that make me wish I WAS Lena Horne. I don't usually enjoy live recordings but this album is perfect. She is very crisp and clear through the whole album. The audience creates a very curious atmosphere on the album- there are a few instances where the audience is laughing at Lena and something she is gesturing... but I think just the audio alone makes the listener outside of the joke.
In this album she is sassy and quirky- and I think these tracks give a little more insight into Lena's personality than the other non live recordings I have. Vocally she is very rich and obviously in her prime- she sings many standards but of course the one and only Lena Makes them her own! This is the number one Lena Album in my collection!

I couldn't wait 'til this CD arrived in the mail. I'm a hardcore Lena fan and I have owned the Lena at the Waldorf LP since I was a teen. What still gets me is how fresh it all still sounds. And those arrangements! Every student of popular singing (or singing period) should own this compilation. Her phrasing, intonation, her sense of time, her immaculate diction and just the way she puts over the song as a whole. I would venture to say that more singers than we realize are influenced (perhaps unconsciously) by Miss Horne. Just listen to the attitude and attack in the some of the 60's recordings of Streisand or recordings of Diahann Carroll, Johnny Mathis,Nancy Wilson,etc. I say all this to say, if you don't own this, you should!

No one planned a club act the way Lena Horne and Lennie Hayton could. Unusual songs, little-heard songs, everything literate and sharp and meaningful and clever, arranged perfectly and delivered with supreme intelligence, heart and musical skill. Lena Horne is gorgeous, Lena Horne is a remarkable singer, Lena Horne is an entertainer without peer but above all she is an artist. And these two remarkable and thrilling albums proved it, as if it needs to be proved. The Waldorf album encouraged scores of other singers to open their shows with "Today I Love Everybody" and "Let Me Love You" and steal as much as they could from Lena, knowing she knew exactly what she was doing. Famous at the time for being sexy, aloof and simmeringly angry, Lena comes across today in the same exact recordings as warm, accessible and a great hostess. What a difference time makes! We just saw different things in her then than we see now, I guess. For anyone interested in the art of popular singing at its zenith, this is the C.D. to get. Forty years have not diminished this music's freshness and inventiveness nor the star power of this remarkable entertainer.

AT LAST THE PERFORMANCE OF MISS HORNE AT THE WALDORF & THE SANDS ON CD. THIS ONE IS DEFINITELY WORTH HAVING! NOT ENOUGH WORDS TO SAY WHAT A GREAT TALENT SHE IS AND AN AMERICAN TREASURE. SHE IS SIMPLY THE VERY BEST AND THESE PERFORMANCES PROVE IT.

This excellent CD has all of the tracks from two of Lena Horne's live record albums entitled Lena Horne at The Waldorf Astoria and Lena at The Sands. These live recordings highlight Lena's exquisite voice and her excellent rapport with her adoring audiences. Indeed, Lena never skips a beat, singing with all her heart and soul on each and every tune. The sound quality is excellent on the tracks from Lena's performance at The Waldorf Astoria but it is not quite as good on the tracks from Lena's show at The Sands; but the electricity that was captured from both performances is so powerful that this becomes a minor quibble.

We get a total of just under eighty minutes of Lena's terrific singing on this album; and every number shines brighter than silver and gold combined when Lena Horne sings it! There's not a dud in the bunch; but of course I have my favorites. Out of the tracks from Lena's show at The Waldorf Astoria, I love the opening song, "Today I Love Everybody." Lena chose a strong, upbeat opening song and she handles complex tempo and key changes like the pro she was and always will remain! "Let Me Love You" has an elegant piano arrangement to accompany Lena as she sings this so sweetly while "Come Runnin'" gets the royal treatment from Lena--and how's about that brass?

There's a dynamic Cole Porter medley; but Lena's medley of "Mood Indigo" and "I'm Beginning to See the Light" impresses me even more. "Honeysuckle Rose" never sounded better than when Lena Horne sang it; and this live recording is no exception! "Day In-Day Out" gets a somewhat Latin sounding arrangement that all holds its own very well; and "New Fangled Tango" is actually very funny! Lena closes with "From This Moment On" much to the delight of her audience!
