Shirley Valerie Horn was an American jazz singer and pianist. She collaborated with many jazz musicians including Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Carmen McRae, Wynton Marsalis and others. She was most noted for her ability to accompany herself with nearly incomparable independence and ability on the piano while singing.
Peel Me a Grape was recorded in May 1995 and released on her album The Main Ingredient in February 1996. It was written by Dave Frishberg.
