Format: Audio CD
Despite the fact that Sarah won a Grammy for this album, critics have often had unkind things to say about it. I am a jazz fan, but not a jazz purist, and do not share their misgivings.

The performance recorded here took place in February 1982, and featured Sarah and her trio together with the Los Angeles Philharmonic under the direction of her friend and admirer, the renowned conductor Michael Tilson Thomas. Sarah and Michael had been performing together intermittently for a few years by the time of this concert, which as far as I know is the only example of their work to have been released on CD.

Michael plays piano on 'Sweet and low-down', 'Do it again' and the specially reworked introduction to 'The man I love'. Sarah is in superb voice throughout, displaying absolute control. When I first heard this album on vinyl, I thought there was a fault on the final track. I was mistaken: it was Sarah changing key during the word 'shining' in 'A foggy day'. No mean feat, but all in a day's work for 'The Divine One'.

Great to find this on CD, having had it as one of my top LPs of all time in the olden days.
Great pairing of voice & orchestra, if you like Gershwin you'll love this.
And it's the best Sarah Vaughan album I've come across.

How is it possible that two such talented musicians can take such liberties with Gershwin? Would they do this to Schubert? Never! So why to Gershwin who’s intricate rhythms are difficult enough to sing and play with out distorting them out of all proportions
