Lena Horne was an iconic singer, dancer, actress, and activist who began her career at age 16 in the Cotton Club chorus line, appeared in such musical films as Stormy Weather and Cabin in the Sky, and lit up the Broadway stage in the Tony and Grammy Award-winning Lena Horne: The Lady and Her Music. Julia Breanetta Simpson’s “Classy & Sassy” is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest entertainers of our time. Ms. Simpson is joined by her trio led by the superbly talented Mario Sprouse with a special guest appearance by world-class woodwind player Charlie Lagond.
