Wow, I'm interested! "James Gavin presents the many Lenas-" I like a REAL biography with some meat and potaties, one that captures the whole person and not just the pretty person. This seems like its really gonna deliver. Thanks for the heads up!

I love Ms. Horne.

I had the phenomenal pleasure of interviewing her in 1994! She said I reminded her of Billy Strayhorn and I almost cried! She was just majestic as a woman and an icon! This book is a definite must have!

Thanks for posting this, Corey! DO YOUR THING!

Great post. Love the photos too. I, too, intend to post on her very soon over at daddyBstrong.blogspot.com

And thanks for coming to my site. Hope to hear from you again. Who knows-at some point, maybe we can crosspost. In that way, some of my readers can get to know about your blog, and yours mine. Blessings.

Sea: Yeah! I know some folk who know Gavin and they've been whispering about this for some time now. Did you know there's a whole community of Horne fans who are STILL as rabid as Bey's? I can't fault them. I can't help lovin' Lena, too!

RevKev: It's always a pleasure to see you comments here! I can't wait to read about Lena and Billy in the book! I also can't wait to hear about your meeting with Lena. Lol.

MacDaddy: Bravo! Welcome! It's an honor! Let me know when you do your Lena post!

Lena Horne has been a fascination of mine for almost as long as I've loved singers. Before I'd reached my teens I discovered two albums she made in the mid-'70s, "Lena & Michel [Legrand]" and "Lena, A New Album." The sadness, anger, and disappointment I heard in her singing -- the raw passion -- touched me deeply, and led me on a search for all the Lena Horne recordings and movies I could find.
