Nice video clip, or should I say, nice music on the video clip. That's about as good as I've ever heard her sing any ballads. Unfortunately, the video is so murky that she can hardly be seen, and the sidemen are just about invisible. I hope the DVD from which it came has better video quality than this!
But watch the clip anyway, or rather, listen to it.

This was a treat. I had never seen those EP covers! The info about the sessions was very interesting, and I always appreciate detailed analysis of performances. Plus this is also my favorite Sarah Vaughan album by far -- one of her jazziest, and thankfully devoid of the vocal excesses that she was prone to. Thanks again.
