Sarah Vaughan
"The Lonely Hours" (Vinyl)

Released in 1964, this is a breezy collection of so-called saloon songs and standards was arranged and conducted by Benny Carter.

This Roulette album is in surprisingly good shape; it makes me think it was seldomly played (if ever.)   I found this record in a used CD shop in Toledo when they were getting rid of their vinyl for 50 cents a piece.  Some of my best pieces of jazz came from that sale.  If I could go back now, knowing what I know now, I probably would've filled the trunk of the car.
