Part of Verve’s Diva Series, this Sarah Vaughan collection is by no means a definitive look at her career. It is, however, a nice overview featuring a healthy slice of some of her best tracks. Included here are such popular recordings as “How High the Moon,” “I Want to Be Happy,” and “Misty.” While most die-hard collectors will already own these tracks, listeners looking for a truthful introduction to Vaughan’s mellow vocal style could do worse than this.
