4.0 out of 5 stars I love Sassy ... and don't you forget it... 6 Aug 2008
By Lordy
Format:Audio CD
This is a bit of a mixed bag really. The first few tracks are actually from the Vaughan with Voices album/sessions, but are added, presumably, because this release would otherwise be ridiculously short. Therein lies the problem, as these tracks are very different in style and mood from the original sessions and to be honest I have never liked the Vaughan with Voices album. Of them, I kinda like Charade, but only because its such a great song and the choir are not too obtrusive. So why have I rated this 4 stars? Well it's because the remainder is so good. It contains some real Vaughan gems. I love her treatment of Peter Gunn which I have never heard anyone else sing and which the liner notes acknowledge was thought to be unsingable before this recording. She really swings on I love you and dont you forget it and even the over familiar Moon River gets a lovely light upbeat arrangement. So all in al an album well worth a listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm in Dreamsville...........too! 5 Nov 2001
By robert oneil - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What a fantastic marriage of musical talents !
How perfect could a collaboration be????
This is really outstanding Sarah on an even higher plane.
That Mancini material is all just soooooo delicious and
Sarah knows just what to do to make it all so steamy,
luscious, whimsical and serenely beautiful.
Sarah makes every song lyric important and true......which,
is why she could continue forever.
From the earliest recordings to her last;
she did more than just display the most gorgeous voice in jazz
history.....she made every song lyric come alive with personal meaning.
I am also a huge fan of Henry Mancini.
Naturally, I have a lot to be thankful for !
You will too, when you listen to this wonderful recording.
Some of the recordings sound a little muffled and not nearly
as crisp as a recording of today's technology.
That hasn't stopped me from enjoying it, immensely.
You will be astounded, too !

4.0 out of 5 stars A spectacular work from a consummate artist 10 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Sarah Vaughan provides a stunning collection of some of Henry Mancini's best-known compositions, all sung in lush, grand Sarah style. "Dreamsville" and "How Soon" are gorgeous ballads, "Moon River" has just the right amount of swing, and "Days of Wine and Roses" was never given a more beautiful treatment. The real finds of the album are the exquisite bossa nova ballad "Slow Hot Wind" and the surprisingly clever "Theme from Peter Gunn" (the lyrics were written especially for this project and Sarah Vaughan; instead of a camp effect the lyrics fit the preconceived notion of the song perfectly). All the album's strengths make you forgive the marring choir on "Charade" and the compositional repetition of "I Love You (and Don't You Forget It)." An attestment to the strengths of both Vaughan and Mancini that more than deserves its reissue.

5.0 out of 5 stars TWO OF MUSIC'S BEST FRIENDS: MANCINI AND SASSY! 11 April 2001
By Giovanni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Henry Mancini may have written some corny things in his illustrious career, (so did Gerswhin, Porter, and Berlin, to name a few) and while Henry Mancini could never attain the heights the aformentioned legends did, he certainly was (and scored) Hollywood legend material, for the big and little screens alike. His work with Johnny Mercer alone is musical perfection. And speaking of musical perfection, it's Sarah Vaughan who tackles a handful of the Mancini songs in this wonderful reissue from Verve. I agree with the former reviewer that the standouts are the ballads, particularly "HOW SOON" and "TOO LITTLE TIME", with their wonderful string arrangements. The sheer golden curtain Sassy drops over you with her vocals on "SLOW HOT WIND' complete with it's latin reeds is down right erotic. I also enjoyed the "starry night" sung "DREAMSVILLE". And yes, the "PETER GUNN" track goes over with aplomb...a great job in restoring the original tapes and cover artwork; a product we havent been able to get much more of since Verve was bought out. Grab this while you can, and enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars The most incredible vocalist for all times 1 July 2009
By Music Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What can one say about a singer who Ella Fitzgerald described as the best voice of all time? What Sarah does is miraculous. Some of the songs are a bit weak, but, she makes them better and the great songs, she absolutely soars. Her phrasing and incredible range (some say 3 octaves, but, it sounds more like 5)make this album worth every penny. Dreamsville, Slow Hot Wind, Mr. Lucky are, for me, the highlights. There will never be another female singer with a voice like Sarah. This album is a good reminder.
