CD Reviews

Intimate Jam Session with Sassy
Peter | East of Los Angeles | 12/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow! One word that can describe this CD, an intimate, yet powerful look at the Divine One. The CD captures the smoky, after-hours feel of the nightclub, you feel like you're sitting in a live jam session. The listener is totally bedazzled by Sassy's commanding interpretations of these classic songs. She is well served by her jazzy trio; there's plenty of expert playing here. Vaughan has always excelled under minimal instrumentation because her vocals get more chances to shine. Wisely, Sarah keeps her well-known power in control and never overwhelms the material. These songs have been performed almost to overkill by various artists, but Vaughan sheds new light with her improvisational skills and emotional range. A rare and unknown recording that merits more attention by jazz fans all over."

"Sarah Vaughan is the greatest from her generation and beyond and nobody listening to this amazing small club concert at England's famed Ronnie Scott's will disagree! As Sarah matured her voice amazingly kept on getting better with more range and fuller sound all on display in this hard to find concert from the seventies. Classic recording is crystal clear, Sarah at the peak of her wondrous powers!!! Luckily experienced legendary Sarah Vaughan many times throughout the seventies in the period this great concert happened and there was nothing finer...anyone who loves a great voice lucky to obtain a copy of this magnificent concert will experience the art of singing at it's absolute finest...BRAVO Sarah and we really miss you!!!"
