    One of Lena Horne's finest studio outings, 1957's STORMY WEATHER (not to be confused with other similarly named releases) features the Brooklyn-born singer at the height of her powers. On these sessions--conducted by either her husband, Lennie Hayton, or Marty Paich--Horne's vibrant vocals hold their own against the top-notch backing band, which includes guitarist Kenny Burrell and trumpeters Doc Severinsen and Harry "Sweets" Edison, among others. Horne's exuberance is palpable on every track; even on typically downbeat tunes such as "Summertime"--here given a slinky, sensual rendition--the strikingly beautiful vocalist charms with her bold, vital performances. Other highlights include a disarmingly boisterous version of the title track, Horne's signature song, and a bright, swinging take on the carefree "Just One of Those Things." For those seeking an individual Horne album, rather than one of many excellent collections, Bluebird's 2002 reissue of STORMY WEATHER is a perfect selection.
