For Coniece Washington her affinity for Shirley Horn holds a special place in her heart. Shades of Shirley Horn is a heartfelt connection to the chanteuse. Washington explains, "the first time I heard Shirley Horn sing, I feel in love with her groove and elegance. Due to my military service I never had the opportunity to attend one of her shows, but I always carry her sound in my heart." Much more than a tribute album, Shades of Shirley Horn is a musical statement to one of the most lasting influences on Washington. The collection of twelve well chosen tunes is a loving homage to Washington's most beloved Great American Songbook selections.
