27 years later Billy Eckstein at the Apollo said "Sing it Baby" and she does! . . . 

And then there's Stockholm . . .

Sarah Vaughan

Videos: “Sing it Baby!” Sarah Vaughan (March 27, 1924 – April 3, 1990) – “Lover Man” [Live in Holland 1958], Sarah Vaughan sings “Send in the Clowns” (1981), Sarah Vaughan & Billy Eckstine – “Body & Soul” / “Dedicated To You” (1985), Sarah Vaughan in Stockholm 1967

A FaceBook friend uploaded Sarah Vaughan’s recording of “Lover Man”, recorded in 1958(?)——my heart swooned and I thought you deserved to know why. Of all the songstresses I’ve ever listened to, Sarah Vaughan soars above them all. If you’ve ever fallen in love, she’ll take you back to that first day you discovered love. I hope you enjoy my video selections.

23 Years later Sarah records a magnificently sung “Send in the Clowns”. Who else has recorded this song so brilliantly and with witty Melancholia . . .
