Sassy Sings

Today I’m thankful for Sarah Vaughan.

I don’t remember how I first heard Sarah Vaughan sing.  I was transfixed.  Her voice is like silk.  On occasion she would forget the lyrics, or be in disagreement with her band, and she never let it get to her.  Recordings that include such incidents showcase her fairly wry sense of humor.

She started with Chick Webb’s band.  Her broad range and warm voice are what made her stand out from her peers.  She performed almost continually for almost 40 years.

I have no rights to the song or video.
