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!

Hey, many thanks for the link and kind words! I was really pleased to find the many YouTube clips of Lena and Dino; the one in my post was one of several terrific ones.

Big fan of Dino's too, great blog you got here! Mr. Martin's own passing really saddened that Christmas Day back in '95, I remember. Already sad because we'd just learned about Butterfly McQueen's passing.

Again, great blog paying tribute to Dean here, and thanks!

Check it out! Ms. Horne was born the same year as our Dino!

That's a wonderful duet from 1968. And I remember it well! I watched that show when it aired.

Our family used to watch the Dean Martin Show at home many years ago. Thanks for the video with Lena Horne.

Hi DMP, You're on line now? I need to send you a copy of Michael Goh's songs. He has made some new copies and wants to send one to you.

You have my email address so please provide me your home address through my email so I can send it to you.

Do take care.

Hey pallie, Mr. Goh's offer is very generous, but I am very reluctant to send my address over the net....just not a safe place for private information....I certainly do not want to offend you or him, so I do hope you will understand...all my best to you and keep lovin' our Dino.....
