You Won’t Forget Me is a 1991 studio album by Shirley Horn.

Miles Davis made his last appearance as a sideman on this album.

“The music here is mostly taken at a very leisurely tempo, and the spare arrangements allow plenty of room for the music to breathe, proving that less is often more. The only complaint is that such spaciousness generates is a certain sameness to the material, but this is leavened by the guest appearances of Thielemans, Davis, the brothers Marsalis, and tenorman Buck Hill.” – Jim Newsom/AllMusic.
