My first encounter with the late, great Shirley Horn was on the Jazz Cruise on the SS Norway in 1998. Horn, who was quite ill at the time, spent days in a wheel chair and emerged each night to perform as if she hadn’t a care in the world. It wasn’t unusual to find her jamming in the upstairs lounge until the early morning hours.
