Sassy - hot and smooth,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eight Classic Albums (Audio CD)
You really get a very wide selection of Sassy's earlier work in this well produced and generous box set. From being "backed" by stellar sidemen(!) of the calibre of Dizzy , Bird and Brownie, to lush and "symphonic" strings, Vaughan sails serenely through her full repertoire. What a voice and what a range! She really puts all other female (and most male) vocalists in the shade. Very few can hold a candle to her in terms of sheer vocal perfection. The play list is , as you would expect for such a healthy package, very varied, and the quality of sound reproduction is more than adequate for the number of original recordings on offer. All in all a very welcome presentation and one heartily recommended for those wanting to familiarise themselves with the work of Sarah Vaughan at a very modest outlay.
