Liner Notes

Sarah Vaughan (Sunday 7.14.13)

Posted by on Jul 17, 2013

With her ability to banter with the audience and outspoken sense of humor Sarah Vaughn was best described as “sassy.” Her first big break came after she won an amateur night at the famous Apollo Theatre.  She would go on to work with such great jazz musicians as Louie Armstrong, Miles Davis, and Count Basie, and create such hits as “Broken Hearted Melody” and “Lover Man.” Though she mostly sang the songs given to her by commercial labels, she showed off her impressive three octave range and brought a flare to the stage filled with laughter, poise, and her own personal kind of charm.
