Label: Acrobat

Sarah Vaughan was one of the illustrious coterie of female vocalists who spanned the genres of jazz, big band music and sophisticated pop during the post-war era to provide some of the finest music of their times, not only interpreting the Great American Songbook and putting their own individual stamp on it, but continuing to perform top class new material through the musical upheavals of subsequent decades. Described by renowned music critic Scott Yanow as the "possessor of one of the most wondrous voices of the 20th century" she performed and recorded consistently through to her demise in 1990. This great value 69-track 3-CD collection follows directly on in her career from our earlier release "The Early Years 1944-48" Sarah Vaughan (Acrobat ADDCD3251), and comprises the A and B sides of her releases on Columbia during her time with the label from 1948 through to 1953. It naturally includes all her eleven Billboard Top 30 entries in these years including the Top 10 hit "I Love The Guy", and features performances with Miles Davis, Bennie Green, Jimmy Jones and Budd Johnson, and the orchestras of Joe Lippman, Hugo Winterhalter, Norman Leyden, Percy Faith, Paul Weston and George Treadwell. In addition, the collection includes bonus tracks comprising 'live' recordings from this era with Jimmy Jones, Stan Getz and Dizzy Gillespie, plus her 1950 MGM singles with Billy Eckstine. It's a comprehensive overview of this important period in her career and a thoroughly enjoyable showcase for her peerless talent as she effortlessly spans the world of jazz and commercial pop.
