Sarah Vaughan The Divine One 180g LP
180g High Quality Pressing! Pressed at Pallas in Germany! Re-mastering by Ray Staff at Air Mastering!
Recorded just after Sarah Vaughan joined the Roulette label in 1960, The
Divine One found her in exactly the right circumstances to suit her excellent
talents. Arranged by Jimmy Jones, who also sits in on piano, the setting was a
small group that included one strong voice to accentuate hers -- and no less a
strong and clear voice than trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison (the perfect
accompaniment for Vaughan). The Divine One is mostly a ballads collection, and
it includes a few songs that were new to her repertoire -- good choices like
"Have You Met Miss Jones?" (aka "Old Jones"), "When Your Lover Has Gone," "Wrap
Your Troubles in Dreams," and "Jump for Joy."
One great left-field choice is "Ain't No Use," the R&B song taken as a slow
torch song that Big Maybelle had first recorded (Nina Simone didn't record it
until several years later). Roulette would soon push Vaughan in many different
directions -- releasing over a dozen LPs in just a few short years -- but this
small-group date is a gem.
