A lifelong resident of Washington, D.C., she was classically trained before discovering jazz, eventually forming her own trio in 1954.

After recording two albums produced by Quincy Jones, she performed locally while raising her daughter. She began performing internationally in the early 1980s. Her subsequent albums garnered one Grammy win and nine nominations. The Shirley Horn Papers document her life and career through printed music, business records, programs, clippings, and photographs.
