Long out-of-print, this collection features Sarah Vaughan performing songs recorded during various sessions from 1945-47. Most notable are "Lover Man," which features Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, as well as "Love Me Or Leave Me" and "I'm Through With Love." This collection features the future Grammy-winner at the earliest stages of her career-she was only 20 during the bulk of these recordings-and shines a light on the up-and-coming star. Sarah Vaughan had a rich career, starting as a big band singer in the 1940s and soon taking her rightful place next to Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald as one of the foremost female jazz vocalists. Her long and illustrious recording career garnered her a number of Billboard-charting singles and albums. Features backing by many jazz greats, including Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Ventura, Al Haig, Buck Clayton and Kenny Clarke.
