A great introduction to Sarah Vaughan
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I discovered Sarah Vaughan for the first time when I picked up this recording at my local library. This album gives you a comprehensive introduction to the variety of music Vaughan recorded. In particular, "The Sweetest Sounds" showcases Vaughan's amazing range and ability to imitate the instrumentalists. "Lullabye in Birdland" highlights Vaughan's trademark scatting - also listen for her introducing her trio, who get to improvise right along with Vaughan. This album has a nice mix of intimate recordings with her trio, and larger scale recordings (various jazz bands and jazz orchestras). I've read that Vaughan actually considered herself an instrumentalist, not a vocalist (in the sense that she used her voice as a jazz instrucment), and this attitude comes through on this album."
A Sunday Afternoon Must!!!

"Sarah's sophistication, range, perfect timing, and playfulness shine through on this album. "Shulie Bop" is a wonderful testament to her ability to be coy and relaxed (just hear her sexy voice as she utters "John Malachi" in the song). Sassy was (and still is) one of the best words to describe her. Don't worry about the track list, if it says "Sarah Vaughan," buy it!!"
