Softly is a studio album by American singer and pianist Shirley Horn, released in 1988 by Audiophile Records. The album was recorded in October 1987 and was her only release for Audiophile. 

This exceptional recording of a remarkable interpretation captures the reflective mood of the late-night intimacy of the recording sessions.

Shirley Horn’s performances here, surrounded by devoted friends, protected from the time-is-money anxiety and the clinical ambience of commercial recording studios, are more introspective and emotionally intense than anything she has recorded before. The recording is so remarkable, the sheer beauty of her sound will warm your heart.

The lady is amazingly on target with her approach to every tune she has chosen to perform. Seldom will a recording session yield only indispensable tracks. This Shirley Horn studio visit did. The recording is so remarkable, the sheer beauty of her sound will sweep you away.
