Album Review

The second of two Pablo CDs featuring Sarah Vaughan interpreting Duke Ellington-associated material shows that the veteran singer never did decline. With assistance from trumpeter Waymon Reed, flutist Frank Wess, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson on alto and a surprise vocal, and several overlapping rhythm sections, Sassy sounds in top form throughout this date. Highlights include "I Ain't Got Nothing but the Blues," "Chelsea Bridge," "Rocks in My Bed," "I Got It Bad" and "Mood Indigo" but all 11 numbers are well worth hearing. Both of these well-conceived sets are easily recommended.

Customer Reviews

Great! Let's Get Both Albums, Please!

Both albums that Sassy did from the Duke Ellington Songbook are classics. Please itunes, get on the ball and put both COMPLETE albums up here. Meanwhile I'll listen to my cassettes and kick myself for not buying them on cd when I had the chance. You'll love: I Didn't Know About You, Black Butterfly, Rocks In My Bed, I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good, All Too Soon, Sophisticated Lady, and In A Mellow Tone. Thank you, Sassy for bringing a renewed appreciation to the Duke!

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...
