“[Vaughan] deliver[s] a nuanced, intimate performance on this live gig. Recorded in August 1957, this date features pianist Jimmy Jones, bassist Richard Davis, and drummer Roy Haynes … The show, of course, belongs to Sassy. She swoops, soars, whispers, and belts it out. Her range is jaw dropping; her control and vibrato are simply beyond compare. And although Vaughan asks for her mic to be turned up throughout the performance, she is mixed up front and quite high in the recording–right where she deserves to be.”

At Mister Kelly’s is a 1957 live album by American jazz singer Sarah Vaughan, recorded at Mister Kelly’s jazz club in Chicago.

Vaughan and Violins is a 1959 studio album by Sarah Vaughan, orchestrated and conducted by Quincy Jones.

The Allmusic review by Dave Nathan awarded the album four and a half stars and said that “these sessions catch Sarah Vaughan at her magnificent best. There may be claims of overdoing it or garishness. But her set of pipes and her willingness to use them dramatically, and sometimes coyly, to bring out the best of everything she sings brushes aside such criticisms as unjustified. Classic standard or novelty tune, she had full command of the vocal art.”

From 1961-1962, Sarah Vaughan recorded two albums while accompanied by just guitar and bass. Her 1962 outing for the obscure Reactivation label (with guitarist Barney Kessel and bassist Joe Comfort) is hard to find, as is her earlier set with guitarist Mundell Lowe and bassist George Duvivier. Surprisingly, Lowe only has one solo, so the emphasis throughout is exclusively on Vaughan’s magnificent voice. The program mostly sticks to ballads, with a couple of exceptions (most notably “Great Day”), and is a quiet and intimate affair, with Vaughan more subtle than she sometimes was. Despite a lightweight version of “My Favorite Things” that will not remind listeners of John Coltrane, this is an excellent if brief set (34-and-a-half minutes) with some fine jazz singing.

Sarah Vaughan recorded in a variety of settings while with Mercury and EmArcy in the 1950s, but this particular matchup with the Count Basie Orchestra (pianist Ronnell Bright substitutes for Count, thus the title) is pure jazz. During the classic encounter, Vaughan fits in comfortably with the band, whether singing lyrics (such as “Darn That Dream,” “Cheek to Cheek,” or “Doodlin'”) or scatting sensuously on “No Count Blues.” The wit and constant swing (in addition to the spontaneous creativity), makes this one of the best of all Sarah Vaughan recordings. Highly recommended. – Scott Yanow

“10 Essentials Of Sarah Vaughan” is a collection recordings of John Coltrane compiles from the archives of Bibliothèque nationale de France…

The BnF’s audio collection, with over a million audio documents, is one of the oldest and most important ones in the world. Born in 1911 as the Archives de la parole (Archives of the spoken word), it was fortunate enough to be the recipient of donations from contemporary phonographic companies. In 1938, with the institution of legal deposit for phonograms, these contributions became systematic; to this very day, they constitute the collection’s main growth vector, forming a one-of-a-kind national heritage. This legal deposit is further complemented by donations and acquisitions.
