Album Description

Tony nominee, Platinum Award winning songwriter and Theater World Award winner, Jazz/Cabaret diva Ann Hampton Callaway is at the height of her vocal powers, and for one magical night those magical powers were on full display at the world famous Jazz At Lincoln Center's Dizzy's Club Coca Cola. Ann's loving tribute to the great Sarah Vaughan channels the spirit of "The Divine One" as no other living vocalist can. Stephen Holden of The New York Times wrote of her performance, "Ann Hampton Callaway, like the great jazz diva Sarah Vaughan to whom she paid tribute at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, has a voice so rich, flexible and extravagantly gorgeous that it hardly matters what use she puts it to. The show was a meticulously constructed, deliberately paced program...at moments you could almost hear Vaughan coming through her." BroadwayWorld.com awarded Ann with "Tribute Show of the Year" as well as "Best Band" for Ann's all-star quintet, featuring Ted Rosenthal at the piano, Dean Johnson on bass, Tim Horner on drums, Warren Oatts on sax and flute and Randy Sandke on trumpet and flugel horn. Highlights include Ann's inspired interpretation of Sarah Vaughan's signature songs, the Erroll Garner classic, "Misty" and Stephen Sondheim's classic "Send In The Clowns" and many other favorites long associated with Sarah such as the brilliant "Someone To Watch Over Me," "A Night In Tunisia," "Poor Butterfly" and much more.
