But the panning of the Belafonte-Horne "Porgy and Bess" came from Lena herself, who did everything in her power to prevent release of the recording. Suppositions are wide-open, as the voices of Belafonte and Horne appear to mesh well, and Horne, especially, is as mellow as she is mellifluent. And perhaps therein lay the problem. Lena was a performer who virtually insisted on personalizing all of her work with the stamp of the inimitable passionate and "stormy" Horne persona. Here she sounds too much like the composer's vehicle.
