Jazz Icons: Sarah Vaughan features the “Divine One” in her prime, wrapping her sultry voice around jazz standards such as “Lover Man”, “Misty” and “I Got Rhythm” and soaring on popular showtunes such as “Over The Rainbow” and “Maria”. One of the greatest voices of the 20th Century, her renditions of songs by Harold Arlen, Leonard Bernstein, Johnny Burke, the Gershwins and Stephen Sondheim are pure diva magic. These three performances demonstrate why Sarah Vaughan is invariably mentioned in the same breath as Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday.

  • Foreword: Growing up with my mom was probably pretty similar to any other childhood. However, there was one big difference…I had to share my mom with millions of people whom I did not know and who all claimed to love her just as much. But they knew a different Sarah Vaughan.

    Sarah…Sassie…Mom. She was all of them rolled into one beautiful woman. It was a very rare occasion when the three crossed paths. Mom is the one I knew best and will carry in my heart for the rest of my life.

    From the early performances that you see on this DVD until the end, her talent as a performer and a human being was unsurpassed.

    I hope you enjoy watching these performances as much as I did. They really capture the young Sarah before the Sass. She’s sweet and sultry with her youthfulness shining through. She is truly the “Divine One.”

    —Paris Vaughan Courtnall
