20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Sarah Vaughan

All Music Guide - John Bush
As one of the few Sarah Vaughan compilations to make it onto the shelves of most music stores until it too is supplanted, MCA's 20th Century Masters collection has large shoes to fill. Since MCA owns the Mercury catalog -- for which she recorded during the '50s and '60s -- listeners shouldn't worry that they're purchasing substandard material.

Surprisingly, even the liner notes are exemplary, including Sarah Vaughan reminiscences shared with David Ritz by Little Jimmy Scott, Carmen McRae, and Andy Bey.

    Great song selection

    There are some really great songs here, "Misty," "A Foggy Day" and "Someone to Watch Over Me." It's in stereo and Sarah's voice was never better. Play the samples.
