The liner note writer uses the word "masterpiece" and he is not wrong to do so. Sarah Vaughan rarely sang better than she does here, and her version of "Embraceable You" is a lesson in jazz invention. Sarah Vaughan's complete works for Mercury filled up 23 CDs. The bit on this CD is undoubtedly the cream of the set. There is a good selection of numbers, including superb versions of "April In Paris" and "September Song", and there doesn't seem to be a single moment when the music drops below the inspired level. Vaughan was accompanied by a disparate group of horn players--trumpeter Clifford Brown, flautist Herbie Mann and tenor saxist Paul Quinichette. Brown's genius just dazzles and Mann and Quinichette lifted their game to a level that they never reached again. The rhythm section of Jimmy Jones, Joe Benjamin and Roy Haynes was Vaughan's normal trio of the times. Inspired? Faultless? A masterpiece? I think so. Oh, and in case you were wondering, it's beautifully recorded, too. --Steve Voce

From the very opening bars of "Lullaby of Birdland", the sweet interplay of Vaughan's velvet voice and Brownie's mellifluous trumpet make this recording truly wonderful. Brownie took a break from the illustrious Max Roach Quintet to play with Vaughan and a band put together for the date.
It exudes the aura of great occasions - collective confidence, fluid ideas and the chemistry of a fresh association. It's one of those records that leave you yearning for more; her later After Hours (1961) is similarly frustrating in length. But a concentrated selection of superbly executed songs is like a little treat. Her command of the material's harmonic intricacies is all the more remarkable for the ease and grace with which she delivers it. On this recording Sarah Vaughan exhibited her elegant phrasing with awesome mastery.

The strength of this album lies in the fact that "Sassy" sings with such a small group of instrumentalists. Consequently her tremendous vocal range shines through. With devine attention to detail she picks-up every nuance of mood, but never looses her ease of delivery. Where others who might follow her sound clinical, Sassy is never anything less than sublime perfection. If you love jazz but don't have this record, shame on you. One the other hand, if you only have room in your collection for one vocal jazz offering, this really should be it.

Format: Audio CD
This 2003 release of Vaughan's December, 1954, album (previously released in 1991 as "Sarah Vaughan with Clifford Brown") is one of her most brilliant collaborations and a fine memorial to the work of Brown, who died eighteen months after recording this, at age twenty-six. With Brown on trumpet, Paul Quinichette on tenor sax, Jimmy Jones on piano, Roy Haynes on drums, and Herbie Mann on jazz flute, the album is a sophisticated partnership among musicians, all of whom are thinking of the whole sound and the whole effect, rather than their own star turns. The mood varies from light to poignantly tender, the tempo is usually slow, and the volume is kept low, highlighting the creativity of each performer's variations while remaining true to the songs and their meanings.

"Lullaby of Birdland" is lightly swingy in Vaughan's hands, with minimal accompaniment and a restrained mood. Vaughan's voice ranges widely, with a lovely contrast between her lowest range and the flute of Mann, as Brown plays a muted trumpet and remains in the background. "April in Paris" is sweetly tender, with Vaughan hesitating as she asks "What have you done to my heart," her accompanists keeping their solos soft. Both "Embraceable You" and "September Song," slow-tempo songs long associated with Vaughan, allow for much improvisation and highlight Vaughan's enormous range while allowing Brown to soar. The "partial alternative take" of "Lullaby of Birdland" features Vaughan's best scat.

"Jim" and "I'm Glad There Is You" are personal favorites.

Format: Audio CD
This collaboration between Vaughan and an impressive "back-up" group is essential listening for all jazz fans and all those who have at least passing interest in jazz. Sarah shows why she was not one of the greatest singers, but also one of the most remarkable jazz musicians, and the group she works with is a dream come true.

Naturally, Clifford Brown (on trumpet) is the main attraction for the contemporary listener but, if you want my humble opinion, tenorist Paul Quinichette ("Colorado's coolest") is not only influenced by Lester Young - he also plays on the similar level, while the flutist Herbie Mann gives very ellegant and yet swining contributions... With the rhythm section of Jimmy Jones (p), Joe Benjamin (b) and Roy Haynes (dm) and Ernie Wilkins aiding with arrangements, things could hardly have gone wrong... This album is at least equal if not better than her collaboration with Miles Davis on Sarah Vaughan in Hi-Fi ; a jazz masterpiece.

If you're not a jazz fan, you might very well become one after listening to this...
