Sarah Vaughan
Sarah Vaughan in Hi-Fi
Columbia Jazz

The heart of this CD are the first eight songs (with seven alternate takes) from two May 1950 dates that feature the vibrant, 26-year-old singer backed by a boppish octet that includes two ex-Hines band members (as was Vaughan)-Budd Johnson and Benny Green-plus Miles Davis, Tony Scott and pianist Jimmy Johnson, her accompanist. Originally issued on an eponymously-titled ten inch LP, these songs mark the beginning of her legend. Recommended!
