An overlooked vocal gem from Sarah Vaughan – recorded in the early 60s with some sweet arrangements by a young Lalo Schifrin! Schifrin was just getting his start on the US scene at the time – and for the set, he's working in a mode that has some of the fuller, richer orchestrations used on other Vaughan albums of the period – but which also breaks out into some leaner and jazzier moments that remind us of his later work. Sarah herself is great – singing with that mature and almost world-weary tone that made so many of her Roulette sides so memorable. Titles include "More Than You Know", "Thanks For The Ride", "Just Married Today", "I Wish I Were In Love Again", "This Can't Be Love", and "Slowly". (Out of print.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very nice jazz-oriented material that has Sarah working with Jimmy Jones, one of her best accompanists, or John Malachi, who was in Billy Eckstine's band at the same time Sarah was with the group. All the tracks have nice small combo instrumentation – and Sarah keeps things nice and warm ... CD

Roulette/Capitol, 1962. Used
A bit different than some of Dinah Washington's other 60s work for Roulette – a set that's not entirely back to the blues promised in the title, but one that's definitely got a strong bluesy undercurrent! The backing's, by Fred Norman, aren't nearly as lush as on other Roulette sessions ... CD
