A concert and interview with jazz singer and pianist SHIRLEY HORN. She recorded with Miles Davis and Quincy Jones in the 1960s and sang on the movie soundtrack, "For Love of Ivy." After a hiatus in which she stayed home and raised her daughter, she returned to performing and recording in 1988. Her 1991 album, "You Won't Forget Me," brought together Toots Thielemans, Buck Hill, Wynton and Branford Marsalis, and Miles Davis. The album was nominated for a Grammy. Her new album, "I Remember Miles," has just been released on Verve records. It's a tribute to the late Miles Davis. Horn is joined today by bassist Charles Ables and drummer Steve Williams.
