Sarah Vaughan - Crazy and Mixed Up (1982) (XRCD)

Sarah Vaughan - Crazy and Mixed Up (1982)
jazz | 1cd | eac-flac-cue-log-cover | 220MB
Sarah Vaughan had complete control over the production of this album, Crazy and Mixed Up (which would be her last small-group recording) and, even if the results are not all that unique, her voice is often in near-miraculous form. With fine backup work from pianist Roland Hanna, guitarist Joe Pass, bassist Andy Simpkins and drummer Harold Jones, Sassy sounds in prime form, on such songs as "I Didn't Know What Time It Was," "Autumn Leaves," "The Island" and "You Are Too Beautiful." It is hard to believe, listening to her still-powerful voice on this CD reissue, that she had already been a recording artist for 48 years.

-2. "That's All" (Alan Brandt, Bob Haymes) - 4:04
-3. "Autumn Leaves" (Joseph Kosma, Johnny Mercer, Jacques Prévert) - 5:36
-4. "Love Dance" (Ivan Lins, Vitor Martins, Paul Williams) - 3:29

No, not quite; in 1982 she hadn't been recording for 48 years. That'd make her debut 1934 at the age of 10. In fact, (wikipedia)

"Eckstine's band also afforded her first recording opportunity, a December 5, 1944 date that yielded the song "I'll Wait and Pray" for the Deluxe label. "

38 years, then. Quite a time.
