This 2011 release has 26 Sarah Vaughan songs; 12 from Billy Eckstine and 10 duets of Irving Berlin songs. This is a wonderful addition to the REXX catalogue and also the CDs of Sarah Vaughan and Billy Eckstine. The sound transfers are excellent and the liner notes informative. This is a lovely mix of solo and duet performances of standards and will make easy listening. There was something quite magical in the teaming together of Sarah and Billy and each of their Irving Berlin songs has depth and atmosphere. Price wise all the REXX double CD sets are excellent value. Looks good and sounds good.

Following on the success of "Passing Strangers" Rex has issued "Dedicated to You" (REXX 342), a second 2-CD set of recordings by Billy Eckstine & Sarah Vaughan. It comprises twelve solos by Billy and twenty-six by Sarah, some of the latter from her Broadway and George Gershwin albums, plus nine duets, predominantly from the pair's Irving Berlin Songbook album.

Billy Eckstine's husky voice was enhanced by his judicious use of a controlled vibrato, which made him instantly recognisable, and Sarah Vaughan's silky tones are no less individual. Here you can enjoy them separately, and when they duet it's like coffee and cream. These are sterling performances of classics from the Great American Songbook which should appeal across the board.

A lot of jazz standards impeccably performed by these two artists. Recording quality is pretty good when played on an upmarket hifi system indicating that re mastering of the original tapes was done with care. Excellent value.
