My wife mentioned the other day how much she liked Sarah Vaughan, so she was most pleased to get this CD. In fact I can remember her playing me a Sarah Vaughan cassette when we first met thirty five years ago, and she's still very keen on this singer, describing her voice and songs as "faultless". You could add urbane, sophisticated and soothing. And the songs here are good, too. As for myself, though, I found them a bit repetitive and lacking in "buzz", for want of a better word. Not the sort of songs I'd sing in the shower! But I still like the CD and it's well worth four stars.

This CD is a selection of some of Sarah Vaughan's more recognised and most beautiful material. her rich, brown contralo voice is finely represented on this CD which includes tracks such as Summertime, Aint Misbehavin', and Time after Time.
A must for all Sarah Vaughan lovers.

Some rave about Ella Fitzgerald, her tonal purity and mirth, but say she could lack emotional depth (not sure I agree). Some rave about Billie Holliday, but have to cede that she had a narrow range, although she was a groundbreaking stylist. Sarah Vaughan was the third great female voice of jazz, and believe you me, she lacked nothing!

This album is a wonderful budget introduction to one of the most remarkable voices of all time. Her range and her sheer musical intelligence are unsurpassable.

This is a good selection of her early work but unfortunately the sound quality is very poor & there are much better quality discs out there.
I recommend the Gitanes jazz round midnight disc..

This recording is the ideal CD if your looking for the early Sarah Vaughan. Nobody has the range that she displays in this recording.
