Comments

Equivalent release: Mercury SR-60116 (stereo).

This title was originally intended for release as EmArcy MG-36152. However, it was cancelled for a certain reason, and re-assigned as Mercury MG-20441 / SR-60116.

with original Mercury inner sleeve and paper insert.

Both the disc and outer sleeve are in awesome near-mint condition. Thank you barbcity-san!

Inside The Groove

Sarah Vaughan's yet another great album, backed up with “No Count” band.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Too famous album backed up with “No Count” band - actually the same band as Count Basie big-band EXCEPT Count Basie himself is not included here (probably due to a contract matter or something?). The big band really swings with rock-solid rhythms!

Again, Devine Sarah sings, improvises, scats so awesome. All tracks on this album are famous popular ones, but Devine Sarah successfully adds refreshing moods and different nuances to every tune. Really fascinating.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

10 out of 10
