Overview

A true labor of love and appreciation for Sarah Vaughan's vast contributions to American popular music, this comprehensive discography documents some 750 songs recorded by Vaughan in 221 recording sessions between 1944 and 1989, some of them multiple times. The artist, when presented with an early draft of this volume a few years before her death, called it a piece of gold and commented that there were songs she'd forgotten and would record again.

Information on orchestra leaders, arrangers, musicians, matrix numbers, and record company catalog numbers is given, and separate sections organize the material by record company issues and index song titles (with composers), musicians, and orchestras. This work will be of interest to scholars and researchers of popular music, to record collectors, and to everyone who loves the music of Sarah Vaughan.
