Sarah Vaughan • Live At The Berlin Philharmonie 1969

Sarah Vaughan (1924-90) had one of the most wondrous voices of the 20th century. Her wide range, impeccable phrasing, improvising talents, and golden tone were impossible to equal although many have tried. She was among the very first singers to incorporate bebop phrasing as a natural part of her style. After stints with the big bands of Earl Hines (1943) and Billy Eckstine (1944), and a brief period with the John Kirby Sextet, she was a solo star for the rest of her career. Whether singing freewheeling jazz with her trio and all-star groups or performing more pop-oriented material with studio orchestras, Sassy was at the top of her field for many decades.
