The Horn Section Salutes Lena Horne (1917-2010)
Sad to report that the great Lena Horne passed away Sunday night at age 92. She was best known for her appearances in 1940's musicals such as CABIN IN THE SKY and STORMY WEATHER but those of my generation first became familiar with Ms. Horne through her near-constant appearances on popular variety shows (FLIP WILSON, LAUGH-IN, DEAN MARTIN) and a very memorable appearance as herself on one of the most famous episodes of SANFORD AND SON. Then in her late fifties, she still had us understanding why Freddy G. was so smitten with her.
Here's Ms. Horne on a 1968 episode of THE DEAN MARTIN SHOW signing solo, then with the star of the show. Enjoy!
More reviews coming!
