The Fifties

I am writing this in response to a negative review written by someone else. Sarah Vaughan was a crossover artist. She not only possesed the finest jazz credentials, but also was a very successful pop artist. The songs on the album were culled from her Mercury years and are not a thrown together after her death type compilation. It was originally released as an LP. "Whatever Lola Wants" is taken from the musical "Damn Yankees" and is a first class rendition. This collection also includes material added for CD release. Notable is "Tenderly". While a purist may decry the selection of some popular music tunes, this is where Sarah's bread was buttered. It is her wonderful voice that ascended this material. In lesser hands it would have been mundane but "The Divine One" makes it great.

At her peak in the 50s she could sing anything convincingly and with incredible power. One just wishes she hadn't sung just anything.

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...
