Stormy Weather

Woke up to the news that jazz great Lena Horne had passed away. I have two songs in my collection by her; "New Fashioned Tango", which is a slightly silly ditty, and her signature song, "Stormy Weather". This link takes you to the YouTube of her singing the song from the movie of the same name.

The following, while probably not considered at the top of her resume, brought Ms. Horne to a wider audience.

Lena Horne on The Muppet Show. Part 1. Part 2 and Part 3. Given her life, the song selection in the show could be considered autobiographical.

A toast to an incomparable legacy.

Beverage: China Black tea
