Count Basie : Atomic Basie
Exciting is the word for Basie-exciting and all its most obvious synonyms, electrifying, thrilling, inflaming, arousing. For this band of Basie's is more exciting, more electrifying, more thrilling, as reviewers have had more than one occasion to point out, than its recordings have usually revealed.
Sarah Vaughan – The Lonely Hours
One can't describe the lonely hours, it is not a place you write about; it is a feeling that only Sarah Vaughan can bring to you. She does it here as she has never done it before. She does it with a turn of phrase, a sigh or the way she hits a certain note.
Sarah Vaughan – You’re Mine You
Another breathtaking set of recordings by the 'Sassy' one, this 1962 release, originally from the Roulette label boasts a dozen lush and lilting romantic tunes arranged by Quincy Jones. Featuring a mix of full band, strings and writing for additional brass and wood winds, each chart compliments Vaughan's vocal moods. Her interpretation of songs from Sondheim-Bernstein, Lerner- Loewe, Rodgers-Hart plus other standard ballads is enhanced by the superb recording captured by producer Teddy Reig and crew. Definitely one that audiophiles and jazz fans alike will play over and over.
