1954 jazz album featuring Grammy Award winning singer Sarah Vaughan and influential trumpeter Clifford Brown, released on the EmArcy label. It was the only collaboration between the pair. Well received, the album was Vaughan’s own favourite among her works through 1980. The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.
Vaughan is arguably in the best voice of her career here and Brown displays his incredible bop virtuosity. In whichever incarnation it’s reissued, Sarah Vaughan With Clifford Brown is one of the most important jazz-meets-vocal sessions ever recorded.
