Sarah Vaughan in Hi-Fi 1949-1952
(this is not the album cover, but her previous album to show an era image of Ms. Vaughan)
At the dawn of her stardom, Sarah Vaughan signed with Columbia Records. She cut
numerous hits, but only one true album. This CD reissue, Sarah Vaughan IN HI-FI,
contains that masterpiece with numerous additional tracks one newly discovered tune
and eight previously unreleased alternate takes which uncover new Miles Davis solos.
Featuring Miles Davis, Budd Johnson, Tony Scott, Jimmy Jones, Freddie Green, J.C. Heard
and Mundell Lowe, among many others.
Recorded between 1949 and December 1952.
If you like Sarah Vaughan or female vocalists of her genre, this will delight your ears and get your toes tapping. The Miles Davis contributions are immediately recognizable to fans of Miles. This album shows his "straight" horn work as an accompanist to a great vocalist. His sidemen are superb in each of their own rights.
A great sunny Sunday morning listen.
