Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Lena Horne's Being Myself is the flip side of Sinatra's September of My Years; rather than gazing backward ruefully, the 81-year-old diva throws herself a well-earned party, wryly celebrating late-life romance on "As Long as I Live" and laughing at despair on "Some of My Best Friends Are the Blues." Even when the disc takes a turn toward the ruminative--"After You," "Willow Weep for Me"--Horne tempers downheartedness with a sly bluesiness. The arrangements, which mostly place her in small-group jazz settings, stay out of the way of the wisdom on display here. --Rickey Wright

Review

The 10 songs on this eclectic set range from the exuberant "As Long As I Live to the heartfelt Autumn in New York to the graceful After You. No matter what she does, she imbues it with a sophistication and elegance rarely heard on records today. -- USA Today

Vocalizing naturally poses greater challenges for her at 80, but her highly nuanced sense of drama pulls her through. Producer Rodney Jones provides spare, first-rate musical support. -- Entertainment Weekly

[Lena Horne] seems to sound better in every outing, and these 10 tracks underscore that conviction. Her distinctive style is most evident on the ballads.... Horne's blues bag is enhanced by tenor saxophonist Houston Person and organist Bobby Forrester on "Some of My Best Friends are the Blues" and guitarist George Benson on "It's All Right With Me." -- Jazz Times
