The singing and playing on this LP speak more eloquently about Shirley’s artistry than anything I could ever hope to say. So perhaps it might be more fruitful to offer a few perplexed insights into this very private woman whom writer Kitty Grime, in her book Jazz Voices, calls “the cult performer … A near-legendary figure.”

“Since I Fell For You” is one of the most requested songs at Shirley’s club appearances.  Written by bandleader Buddy Johnson, the blues ballad was a 1945 hit for Ella Johnson who recorded it with her brother’s orchestra.
