Jazz Icons: Sarah Vaughan features the 'Divine One' in her prime, wrapping her sultry voice around jazz standards such as 'Lover Man', 'Misty' and 'I Got Rhythm and soaring on popular showtunes such as 'Over The Rainbow' and 'Maria'. One of the greatest voices of the 20th Century, her renditions of songs by Harold Arlen, Leonard Bernstein, Johnny Burke, the Gershwins and Stephen Sondheim are pure diva magic. These three performances demonstrate why Sarah Vaughan is invariably mentioned in the same breath as Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday.
