Sarah Vaughan (March 27, 1924 April 3, 1990) was considered the most vocally gifted singer in American jazz, of the 20th Century, followed by Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. With a vocal range of three octaves, she could sing virtually anything she intended to. A couple of nicknames she acquired were Sassy and The Divine One.

Studying the piano from an early age, she became an organist and choir soloist at the Mount Zion Baptist Church as a pre-teen. At the age of eighteen, a dare from friends resulted in her entering the famed Amateur Contest at Harlem’s Apollo Theater in 1942. Her rendition of the jazz standard “Body and Soul” won her first prize. Billy Eckstine was in the audience that night. Six months later, she had joined Eckstine in Earl Hines’s big band, and sang alongside Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, as well as being the bands second pianist.”Tenderly” and “It’s Magic” became popular during the late 1940s, and she continued to build on her fanbase in the 1950s with songs like “Misty” and “Broken-Hearted Melody.” She continued playing with some of the biggest names in the business, including Miles Davis and Jimmy Jones.Vaughan continued recording jazz and pop material on a variety of labels in the 1950s, 60s, 70s and early 80s.Sarah Vaughan in Hi-Fi was recorded in May of 1950 for Columbia and produced by John Hammond.
