The Charlie Haden Quartet West welcomes the vocal talents of Shirley Horn and Bill Henderson for THE ART OF THE SONG, an album that contains the kinds of soft ballads that recall the early days of jazz. A large string section conducted by the group's pianist Alan Broadbent, which gently frames the elegant proceedings, provides lush accompaniment. The results are a remarkable recording of the utmost beauty and artistic grace. Haden's melancholy bass tones are exquisite as he provides both the pulsing undercurrent and several choice solo spots over the caressing strings. Horn and Henderson are grand as usual, interpreting such melodies as "Lonely Town" (Horn) and "Ruth's Waltz" (Henderson) with refined style. Instrumental works like "Scenes From a Silver Screen," which features violinist Murray Adler, and the very soothing "Prelude en la Mineur" guarantee to seduce all who succumb to aural delights. Haden even takes a vocal turn at the moving "Wayfaring Stranger," which brings this stunning session to a fitting close.

Recorded at Capitol Studios A, Hollywood, California from February 19-22, 1999. Includes liner notes by Orrin Keepnews.
