"I must say this CD really grew on me after a while. Even though I own other CD's of Sarah "Sassy" Vaughan in a live setting, but this one really captures her in a very intimate setting, and the price certainly ain't bad either. Only wish (request) to the Laserlight label to maybe put more effort into their liner notes research. Nothing inside gives an indication where or when this CD was recorded, but based on Sassy's monologue, it's in Paris.Vaughan certainly knew how to grasp her audience with her voice, sometimes jumping octaves to put a song down the home stretch or slowing the pace to make the crowd hang on her every syllable. Highlights of this satisfyingly unknown recording are her renditions of the old chestnut titles "Embraceable You" and "Loverman". She slows the pace of these songs to make you draw on her every breath and enunciation, this is very much a showmaster at her peak live performance. Her onstage patter makes you chuckle with her spontaneity and feistiness, I guess where she got the nickname "Sassy". This is a CD that deserves a wider audience for Vaughan's legions of fans."

"This is a great cd. Laserlight has a knack for bringing otherwise obscure live recordings to light. The sound is very good. Highlights include What Now My Love, and Lover Man , a very endearing encore during which Sassy croons "Turn the lights down low....." and, not being able to get them to turn the house lights down, begins to put in a few little 'sassy' quips about the situation all in a very lighthearted and endearing manner of course! Bob James supports her on piano along with Herb Mickman on bass, and Omar Clay on drums....A very enjoyable live recording by one of the greatest vocalists of all time."
