Une biographie de Sarah Vaughan, écrite par Alain Gerber, illustrée par Séra, accompagné.e de 2 compact discs.
Elle nous a quittés en 90, nous disent ses biographes. On n’en croit pas un mot et la mémoire vive de ce double CD nous la rend insolemment vivante, au soleil de ses trente ans, le timbre incroyablement riche et chaud, la maitrise technique renversante, la diction parfaite et ce je ne sais quoi qui fait vibrer le coeur et le corps. A l’âge de tous les culots, musicienne parmi des musiciens majuscules, les pianistes Jimmy Jones, John Malachi et Ronnel Bright, le batteur Roy Haynes, le trompettiste Clifford Brown ... Toutes ses plages de grand jazz, son best of the best, sa crème de la crème. Définitif et indispensable, point à la ligne

Her biographers say she departed in 1990. Don’t believe a word of it. The living memory enclosed in this double album makes her insolently alive for us, resplendent under the sun of her thirty years, her timbre unbelievably rich and warm, her technical mastery astounding, perfect diction, and that je-ne-sais-quoi that causes mind and body to quiver. Here she is, at an age when anything goes, a Musician among Musicians — with a capital M — like pianists Jimmy Jones, John Malachi and Ronnell Bright, drummer Roy Haynes, trumpeter Clifford Brown ... Great jazz in every track, the best of her best, the cream of her crop. Definitive and indispensable, period.
