5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, Amy was right !!!!!, 25 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: With Clifford Brown + 1 bonus track (180g) 12 [VINYL] (Vinyl)
I've fallen back in love with vinyl!, the size of the record, taking it out of the sleeve the first time, the smell !!

Well anyway, i decided to buy some classy "lounge vinyls" The first was Sinatra's "Wee Small Hours" (beautiful!) then I invested in Billie Holliday's "Lady in Satin", then I wondered where to go next. Enter Amy Winehouse, whilst watching a documentary (The day she came to Dingle) Amy was interviewed and when asked about influences she mentioned Sarah Vaughan. Well Amy certainly knew a thing or two about jazz singers, so, finding this album for sale on Amazon, I decided to give it a go. What a great decision too! I cannot recommend it enough. Not only do you get to enjoy Sarah's beautiful voice, but you also get the chance to enjoy the marvellous Clifford Brown on trumpet and his fellow musicians including some superb flute & piano solos from Herbie Mann & Jimmy Jones respectively. The "jazz feel" really works well, and the instrumental passages nestle along side Sarah's vocals very naturally, without ever feeling forced into their alloted segments (hope that makes sense!). Clifford Brown's recording career was tragically short, but if you want to sample both his superb playing skills along with Sarah's marvellous singing then this recording would make for a sound investment!

It's difficult to choose any particular track as a favourite, there really isn't a poor track here! The heavyweight vinyl copy that I have is a delight, the whole process of taking the record from it's sleeve, putting it on the turntable etc., then chilling out on the sofa and letting the wonderful melodies & Sarah's soothing voice wash over you is an absolute joy. Buy it, you absolutely will not regret it !
