      ...it's a Mantle/Mays/Aaron thing, but it is hard to argue with this...

      •  Well that was fantastic (0+ / 0-)

        And we swung it. Yeah we swung it.

        In Stockholm, Sweden. Ella swings harder than anyone and she shows impeccable style, grace, and timing. She did Louis Armstrong perfect and she has great humor throughout. She is probably my top vocals influence and I love everything about her.

        But Sassy makes your heart hurt.

        After you spend several months listening to the same three Sarah Vaughn records over and over because they are the only three Sarah Vaughn records you have she starts to live in your soul and your life is changed forever. You breathe with her breath and her voice permeates your being because her art is beyond adjectives.

        This is, of course, a matter of opinion. Some idiots don't like Sarah Vaughn. And some people vote Republican. No accounting for taste.

        She's tops in my book.

        Thanks for the music. I always love your stuff.

        I did an article about Ella where I said The Great American Songbook is all the songs Ella sang.
