Viva! Vaughan Tracklist.

Viva! Vaughan is a 1965 studio album by Sarah Vaughan, orchestrated and conducted by Frank Foster, and produced by Quincy Jones

Sarah Vaughan's Viva! Vaughan is a curious blend of jazz and pop with Latin percussion, with arrangements by ex-Basie sideman Frank Foster, recorded in the midst of the mid-'60s bossa nova craze. Vaughan is in great voice throughout the date and the material is generally first-rate, except for the bland "Night Song.

The instrumentalists comprised Billy Taylor Sr. bass, clarinet Tony Scott, drums . Heard, guitars Freddie Green and Mundell Lowe, piano Jimmy Jones, on tenor saxophone Budd Johnson, trombone Bennie Green, and trumpet Miles Davis. The 8 songs were later incorporated into 1955's Sarah Vaughan in Hi-Fi. East Of The Sun (And West Of The Moon) - Brooks Bowman.

Viva Vaughan" is one of Sarah's and Quincy's BEST and proof why they were incomparable in their field of expertise. It's a bit of a shock that this album wasn't a commercial success upon its 1965 release: the arrangements, while artistically sound, were timely for the Bossa Nova craze, and a third collaboration between Vaughan and Quincy Jones (following "Vaughan and Voices" and the fabulous "Vaughan and Violins") was certainly at that point a no-brainer for superior music. But art not equalling commerce is the oldest crime in the industry, so it looks like jazz fans in the know can enjoy another wrongly well-kept secret
