Sarah Vaughan: "Tenderly"

Sarah Lois Vaughan was born on this day in 1924, in my hometown: Newark, NJ. In this clip, taken from a 1958 performance, she sings “Tenderly.”

Thanks must go to Lester Perkins and Jazz on the Tube.

Sarah Vaughan was one of the great American singers, regardless of genre!

That was lovely. Thanks, Stephen.

My personal favorite instrumental version is pianist Art Lande's rendition, recorded by Cookie Marenco for her Blue Coast Records label.


Happy Easter, Pesach sameah!
