Send In The Clowns (Remastered)
Ignore the liner notes that were written for this album. The reviewer asserts that the arrangements don't create enough space for the members of the Basie band to solo but when Sarah Vaughn is the featured singer it doesn't matter. Her voice sounds as good or better than any horn. Her interpretation of Send in the Clowns, for example, is hardly, as the reviewer asserts, "overly dramatic." You should listen to her rendition of this song in the same way that you would listen to a great jazz horn player; Vaughn is improvising on the melody and harmonic changes of this wonderful song.
This record was an absolute find. I had no idea of its existence until I was shopping the Sarah Vaughan section on iTunes. She is impeccable. Her voice is in top form. Her choices sublime. The Basie Band is as the Basie Band always is: swinging, supportive, dynamic and just plain killin'! The arrangements were obviously designed to feature Sarah Vaughan on a Sarah Vaughan record. Usually one to demand a chorus from an instrumentalist or 2, I hadn't even noticed that there were so few until my third or fourth pass through the program. I am mezmerized by her and the infectious time and groove of this all-time band.
Sarah at her Best !! xo
When I came upon this Treasure , I was blown away at how amazing Sarah Vaughan still is and was ...Her voice is to me , mesmerizing !!
Her voice "tastes" so good ....like liquid Gold and with the Count Basie Orchestra ...it couldn't get any better ...I never tire of listening to it and vocalists like this will never grow old or fade .. Sarah is truly Divine !! xoxo
