Product Description:

Although there are no sources given for any of the material included on Divine Lady of Song (2004), one thing is for certain, vocalist Sarah Vaughan is in fine form on these live recordings, presumably taken from various radio broadcasts during the late '40s and '50s. Her unmistakably supple style rivalled the likes of Ella Fitzgerald and she was compared to Billie Holiday for her gritty no-nonsense and often exposed soulful qualities. The disc commences with an in-studio session featuring Ray Bloch and his Orchestra on the first of two high-energy and jumping renditions of Cole Porter's "Just One Of Those Things." She is again heard introducing the combo on the contrasting pair of scintillating ballads and timeless pop standards "Misty" and "Careless." Equally lovely is the yearning "While You Are Gone," coupling Vaughan this time with a full ensemble led by Harry Sosnick. The remainder of the anthology returns the artist to the confines of a trio, where her interaction is decidedly intimate, allowing for more of her distinctive scat singing and improvisation. "But Not for Me," "What Is This Thing Called Love," "All of Me" and especially the nearly seven-minute outing "Sometimes I'm Happy" exemplify the energetic spontaneity that was at the essence of Vaughan's well-deserved moniker as the Divine Lady of Song. Despite the contents being derived from a variety of origins, the fidelity is uniformly excellent throughout, creating a worthwhile addition for collectors and curious enthusiasts alike. ~ Lindsay Planer
