Lena Horne's fruitful recording career is surveyed with typical care and finesse by Sony/Legacy in The Essential Lena Horne, a two-disc, 39-track summation of her RCA Records career (which includes the vast majority of her best material).

By 1969, Lena Horne hadn’t released a new album for four years and was pretty much considered yesterday’s news as a recording artist. At the same time, Gabor Szabo, who is one of the few guitarists whose stands comfortably beside Jerry Garcia when it comes to guitar sound, technique and improvisatory style, left Impulse Records to form his own Skye Records label along with vibist Cal Tjader and composer/arranger Gary McFarland. So it only seemed natural that Gabor and Horne would record an album together. The album’s repertoire included Horne’s first chart hit in some time with today’s Song Of The Day, Watch What Happens, which was written by Michel Legrand. The record also featured no less than four Beatles covers including versions of In My Life, The Fool On The Hill, one of the best covers of Something ever, and a fairly ridiculous take on Rocky Raccoon.
