Live At Rosy's


'Sarah Vaughan - Live at Rosy's' is a newly discovered live recording captured in an intimate club setting on May 31, 1978 at Rosy's in New Orleans. Featuring nearly 90 minutes of music from "the Divine One," Sarah Vaughan - backed by her trio of pianist Carl Schroeder, bassist Walter Booker and drummer Jimmy Cobb. This recording has never been available before.

Deluxe 2-CD set with a 36-page booklet that includes essays by jazz writers James Gavin and Will Friedwald, club owner Rosy Wilson, and pianist Carl Schroeder, plus interviews with drummer Jimmy Cobb and vocalist Helen Merrill. It also includes rare and unpublished photos from Herman Leonard, Ray Avery, Chuck Stewart, Riccardo Schwamenthal and Tom Copi.

The rhythm section (or as Sassy put it, "my trio") was extremely tight at this time. The band was made up of pianist and arranger, Carl Schroeder, bassist Walter Booker and legendary drummer Jimmy Cobb. This band played hundreds of performances around the globe with Sarah Vaughan and in the recordings in this set, these four masters' empathy with one another and their consummate cohesiveness as a unit are undeniable.

"When Sarah sang, she might just as well have been a trumpet player playing. Her musical ability, her jazz was perfect." - Helen Merrill
