Format: Audio CD
Having celebrated her 90th birthday in June, the legendary Lena remains an iconic figure with a long career dating back to her period as a dancer in the famous Cotton Club revues during the Thirties before moving on to become a solo singer with appearances with the Duke Ellington and Cab Calloway Orchestras. In Hollywood during the 40's, she sparkled in the 20th Century Fox musical melodrama STORMY WEATHER while her memorable MGM screen musicals included CABIN IN THE SKY, TILL THE CLOUDS ROLL BY and WORDS AND MUSIC. Later she triumphed as a supper club entertainer with stage work in JAMAICA (1958) and her 1981 one woman show, THE LADY AND HER MUSIC adding kudos to a fabulous career.

Despite involvement with the US Civil Rights Movement during the Sixties, Lena recorded some lively albums with one disc of this excellent overview devoted to tracks from three United Artists albums (FEELIN' GOOD, LENA IN HOLLYWOOD and/SOUL) released in 1965/66. Songs include up-tempo versions of new songs ON A WONDERFUL DAY LIKE TODAY, FEELIN' GOOD, HELLO YOUNG LOVERS and THE BOY(GIRL) FROM IPANEMA with tasty ballads I WANNA BE AROUND, SOFTLY AS I LEAVE YOU and a notable reading of Lennon and McCarthy's AND I LOVE HIM providing fine contrast. Fresh reinventions of oldies and goodies SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, and WILLOW WEEP FOR ME join movie songs MOON RIVER, IT HAD BETTER BE TONIGHT and IT'S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD, with a more contemporary viewpoint proving no problem when Lena zips through the rhythmic machinations of I GOT A WORRIED MAN, Bacharach and David's WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS LOVE and a bluesy UNCHAINED MELODY.

Best of Lena Horne is a fine two CD set with so much of her incredible singing; and there's not a dud in the bunch! Lena could take anything and turn it into the most beautiful symphony; her ability to interpret lyrics was all that good. I am shocked and very saddened by her passing early this morning although she will live on through her great work including the songs on this two CD set. In addition, the quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork is very nicely done.

"On a Wonderful Day Like Today" starts the first CD with a terrific electric number that grabs my attention and never lets it go until the second CD is finished! My personal favorites include "I Wanna Be Around" is so very romantic in Lena's capable hands; "Feelin' Good" with that excellent musical arrangement; "Willow Weep for Me;" "The Girl from Ipanema" that certainly gets the royal treatment from Lena; "Softly As I Leave You" which makes great use of the strings; the classic "And I Love Him;" "Hello, Young Lovers" from "The King and I;" "Singin' In the Rain" which Lena sings with panache; "Somewhere" from "West Side Story;" the hit "Wives and Lovers" which I first heard performed by Jack Jones; "Moon River" from "Breakfast at Tiffany's;" a red hot rendition of "A Fine Romance;" "I Love Paris;" "What The World Need Now Is Love" which sounds so perfect when the great Lena Horne sings it and the first CD ends with Lena Horne performing "Unchained Melody."

Of course, this being Lena Horne, the second CD contains so many more gems. "Day Follows Day" has Lena singing with Johnny Mathis; they do this faultlessly and that's grand. "Old Friend" is very well done; and I really like the romantic and very sensitive "You're the One.
