"Here's to Life" is a classic jazz ballad written by Artie Butler with amazing lyrics by Phyllis Molinary. The song was originally recorded and popularized by Shirley Horn in 1992. The late Glenn Frey (The Eagles) covered this song on his last solo album "After Hours." The song is very slow and I have not found an existing RealStyles style that works for me. The song is somewhat obscure and probably wouldn't be considered a jazz standard, but it should be!

If you aren't familiar with the song, please take the time to listen to the version by Glenn Frey on Youtube. Any suggestions as to a similar BIAB style would be appreciated.

Hi Sam,

Thanks for the request. I've added the Shirley Horn version. A slow Jazz ballad style would work well for this, around 55bpm.
