Sarah Vaughan – You’re Mine You

$47.50

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.

Description

In a lush, lilting and romantically warm mood, Sarah Vaughan comfortably wraps herself around a superb selection of songs. The songs fit Sarah’s sound and she, in turn, works her witchcraft to conjure up a new glow and a new feeling in each song.

 

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
This LP finds Sarah Vaughan backed by big-band and string arrangements from Quincy Jones that could easily have been used for a Frank Sinatra date. Vaughan’s voice is typically wondrous and sometimes a bit excessive on the ballads (some may find her slightly overblown version of “Maria” a bit difficult to sit through), but in top form on the more swinging numbers. In the repertoire are such tunes as “The Best Is Yet to Come,” “The Second Time Around” and “Baubles, Bangles and Beads.” More of a middle-of-the-road pop date than a creative jazz session (the personnel is not given), the set is not essential but should please those who love the sound of Vaughan’s remarkable voice. The final two “bonus” numbers (“One Mint Julep” and “Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean”) were originally released as a single.
