EDITORS’ NOTES

These long-lost recordings from Sarah Vaughan's 1978 engagement at a storied New Orleans nightclub find the jazz and pop singer in exceptional form well into the fourth decade of her career. Her backing trio includes drummer Jimmy Cobb, whose swing energizes “I’ll Remember April." Even as her voice turns huskier with age, Vaughan still commands a wide variety of vocal effects, including high trills on “Time After Time” and the exquisitely grainy timbre of “I Fall in Love Too Easily.” Her bluesy version of “Somebody Loves Me” has a snappy style that’s pure Sassy.
