Sinner or Saint
I would duet with Sarah as a kid and while too young to understand the pathos of the lyrics, I was old enough to appreciate her incredible voice. If you're not familiar with Sarah Vaughan, treat yourself to 16 Most Requested Songs. I am fond of her ballads which are featured on After Hours. The library also has wonderful jazz icons DVD series which includes Sarah Vaughn live in '58 and '64.
I am always looking for new recordings to share. Fortunately, the library not only has recordings, but talented staff like Eric, a colleague who screens jazz CDs as they arrive at the library. I have taken many "Eric recommendations" home with great success. Look for Eric's latest list of jazz favorites coming soon this fall.
