Album Remarks & Appraisals:
This collection of songs features such notable hits as "LOVER MAN", "TENDERLY", "STORMY WEATHER", & "MY FAVOURITE THINGS" to name a few. 16 wonderful songs at a great price. A true jazz vocalist legend.
With a career as long and a discography as extensive as jazz vocal icon Sarah Vaughan's, most compilations are going to come up short. The 16-track Ultimate Legends is fairly run of the mill, but certainly an enjoyable collection culled from Vaughan's prime years. The sound quality on some of the tracks is less than desirable, but even on murky second-tier recordings, her voice is just dazzling. "I'll Be Seeing You," "Stormy Weather," and "A Hundred Years from Today" are some of the highlights on this hodgepodge collection. Even casual fans could do better than this, but as an introduction to one of America's vocal greats, this will serve ably enough. ~ Timothy Monger
