This set features the great Sarah Vaughan in a typically spontaneous Norman Granz production for Pablo with pianist Oscar Peterson, guitarist Joe Pass, bassist Ray Brown, and drummer Louie Bellson. Sassy sounds wonderful stretching out on such songs as "Midnight Sun," "More Than You Know," "Teach Me Tonight," and "Body and Soul," among others. All ten of the melodies are veteran standards that she knew backwards but still greeted with enthusiasm. A very good example of late-period Sarah Vaughan.

1961 performances from "the Divine One" for the Navy Swings public service program, so rare they're not even listed on her discographies! Includes All of Me; Tenderly; What Is This Thing Called Love?; I'll Be Seeing You, and more. This is a largely unknown gem in Sarah Vaughan's discography. A group of trio performances recorded in 1961 for radio broadcast, the songs on this disk feature to-the-point, swinging renditions of standards such "I Cried for You," "Over the Rainbow," "Tenderly," "Summertime" and "Poor Butterfly." In fact, the disk gets through the 16 tunes in 43 minutes, but it leaves you wanting to hear more – the best possible compliment. Sarah's voice is light and well projected. The presence of Roland Hanna on piano is a bonus.

Collectors' Choice's clever repackaging of Bing Crosby radio shows continued apace with Bing on Broadway, a collection of 19 show tunes, all of them recorded for his radio show between 1954 and 1956. A Bing Crosby radio show was not a place for low-quality material, though Crosby put time and pride into these songs, and although he pre-recorded much of this material, for that reason it doesn't sound radio-show quality at all. And the songs can't be beat either, with a program full of gems as shiny as "Crazy Rhythm," "How Long Has This Been Goin' On," "Ain't Misbehavin'," "It's Only a Paper Moon," "Come Rain or Come Shine," and even "Swanee" (the latter being one of the few songs here that came along before even Crosby's time). The arrangements and accompaniment are headed by Buddy Cole and his small group, which gives these songs an intimate feel often lacking in Crosby's regular studio sides.

"The First Lady of Song," Ella Fitzgerald was arguably the finest female jazz singer of all time (although some may vote for Sarah Vaughan or Billie Holiday). Blessed with a beautiful voice and a wide range, Fitzgerald could outswing anyone, was a brilliant scat singer, and had near-perfect elocution; one could always understand the words she sang…

This aptly named set was recorded on November 28, 1972, in Barcelona, Spain. Although many of Ben Webster's European sessions suffered when compared to his American ones, this outing is one of the exceptions, due in no small part to the fluid piano work of Tete Montoliu. Supported by a rhythm section of Eric Peter on bass and Peer Wyboris on drums, both Webster and Montoliu have plenty of room to breathe, and the result is a wonderful and pleasant set highlighted by the opening track, "Ben's Blues," and an easy, elegant version of "Sweet Georgia Brown." Webster's trademark breathy tenor sax tone is in full supply here, but the real revelation is Montoliu, who proves to be a marvelous jazz pianist, making Gentle Ben somewhat of an overlooked gem.

Recorded around the same time as her groundbreaking work with Louis Armstrong, this album is representative of Fitzgerald's best vocal work. Recorded over a two-day period in October, 1957, Fitzgerald sings familiar ballads on this release accompanied by lush orchestral arrangements courtesy of Frank DeVol, with tenor sax legend Stan Getz contributing to four songs.

There's a reason Benny Goodman was hailed as the "King of Swing." He really did have one of tightest, swingin'-est bands in the mid-1930s. As a clarinetist he was brilliant. He hired terrific singers. He recorded many of the era's top songs. Yes, you get three CDs packed with a total of 64 tracks and close to four hours of music. Yes, many of Benny's big "hits" are here ("Goody Goody," "Let's Dance," "There's a Small Hotel," etc.). It's a mixture of commercial recordings, radio "airchecks," and live concert performances (including a few tracks from the famous 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert).

Jacintha is a Singaporean jazz singer/torch singer and stage actress who has been well-known in parts of the Asia-Pacific region since the '80s and has been increasing her exposure in North America since the late '90s. Jacintha has never been the type of jazz artist who goes out of her way to be abstract, difficult, or complicated; her work has been quite accessible and easy to absorb, drawing on direct or indirect influences that have included Julie London and Shirley Horn as well as Brazilian star Astrud Gilberto. Jacintha has long been fluent in English, which is widely spoken in Singapore and is one of its four official languages along with Malay, Mandarin Chinese and Tamil.

Influenced by Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster but definitely his own person, Ike Quebec was one of the finest swing-oriented tenor saxman of the 1940s and '50s. Though he was never an innovator, Quebec had a big, breathy sound that was distinctive and easily recognizable, and he was quite consistent when it came to came to down-home blues, sexy ballads, and up-tempo aggression. –Alex Henderson
