With a recording career that dated back to 1941 and a successful acting career behind her, Lena Horne was an all-round entertainer. Indeed, her list of awards and accolades include both Tony and Grammy awards, indicative of her widespread appeal. On 20 February 1957 her performance at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York was recorded and subsequently released as an album later that year. Peaking at #24 on the pop chart, it would go on to become the best selling album by a female performer that the label had ever enjoyed. Lena’s husband Lennie Hayton conducted the orchestra, a function her performed throughout much of her career. With the material a mix of standards and traditional, Lena Horne At the Waldorf Astoria is a compelling collection.
