Sarah Vaughan
"How Long Has This Been Going On?" (Vinyl)

Welcome back from a week at home for Christmas! Trying to pick up the pieces...

We begin with Sarah Vaughan's late "How Long Has This Been Going On?" an almost perfunctory set of jazz standards. There's little here that's new or noteworthy; she was quite old when she recorded this. Much of the magic and charm in her voice is still there, but her pitch center drops numerous times throughout the recording.
