A Beautiful Song: Sarah Vaughan

Five minutes you won’t regret spending on YouTube if you are a fan of wonderful singing (operatic, jazz or otherwise). Sarah Vaughan singing Errol Gardner’s “Misty.” Yes, I know she had the most operatic voice of any jazz singer, and that’s perhaps what first drew me to her, but her way with a lyric, her style as a singer, and that ardent restraint keep me listening.

(And she had a cold, which you can tell–and still gives a performance like this!)
