From the Soundboard is a show that focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artists and/or groups perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On Wednesday, December14 we will focus on the Newark, NJ’s native that was known as “the Divine One,” Sarah Vaughan.
“Possessor of one of the most wondrous voices of the 20th century, Sarah Vaughan ranked with Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday in the very top echelon of female jazz singers. She often gave the impression that with her wide range, perfectly controlled vibrato, and wide expressive abilities, she could do anything she wanted with her voice. Sarah Vaughan’s legacy as a performer and a recording artist will be very difficult to match in the future.” Scott Yanow [All Music Guide]
