Sarah Vaughan (1924-1990) was blessed with a singularly remarkable vocal instrument, a four-octave contralto capable of shaking down the stars or plumbing oceanic depths. From 1977 to 1982, Vaughan recorded for Pablo Records, and her work for that label, a balladic cross-section of which is presented herein, is some of the finest of her long and distinguished career. Most of these eleven love songs are prime entries from the Great American Songbook, one exception being “Like a Lover,” a captivating Brazilian import whose co-composer, Dori Caymmi, joins Vaughan on voice and guitar. Whether backed by full orchestra, all-star small groups, or a complement of Brazil’s best, Sarah Vaughan sings not solely for lovers, but for lovers of singing at its most musicianly.
