|Sarah Vaughan Sarah Vaughan sings George Gershwin Limited Vinyl 2LP Set
Possessor of one of the most wondrous voices of the 20th century, Sarah Vaughan ranked with Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday in the very top echelon of female jazz singers. She often gave the impression that with her wide range, perfectly controlled vibrato, and wide expressive abilities, she could do anything she wanted with her voice. Although not all of her many recordings are essential (give Vaughan a weak song and she might strangle it to death), Sarah Vaughan's legacy as a performer and a recording artist will be very difficult to match in the future. This release contains the complete original Sarah Vaughan 2-LP set "Sarah Vaughan Sings George Gershwin" (Mercury MGP-2-101), which presents Sarah performing songs by the great composer backed by the Hal Mooney orchestra. A variety of other Gershwin songs (and different versions of the same songs included on the album) recorded by the singer for different labels during that same period have been added here as a bonus. Featured musicians include Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, J. J. Johnson, Kai Winding, and Roy Haynes, among many others.
