Sarah Vaughan Revisited

By Charlotte Robinson, September 18, 2014
Jazz & cabaret diva Ann Hampton Callaway will be performing her fabulous new tribute album “From Sassy to Divine: The Sarah Vaughan Project” at Scullers Jazz Club in Boston on Friday September 19th for 2 shows at 8P & 10P. The album has received rave reviews & debuted in the top 20 on Amazon Jazz & at 11 on I-Tunes Jazz. Ann Hampton Callaway, the multi-platinum selling & Tony nominated singer/songwriter’s loving tribute to the great Sarah Vaughan channels the spirit of The Divine One as no other living vocalist can. Ann stated, “I am excited to return to one of my favorite jazz clubs, Sculler's this week, to make my first concert appearance after the release of my new CD ‘From Sassy To Divine: The Sarah Vaughan Project”. Boston jazz lovers show the love & know the music. I will have Ted Rosenthal at the piano, Dave Zinno on bass & Yoron Israel on drums as we celebrate the extraordinary life & music of the great Sarah Vaughan. The response to this show has been stirring- my recent appearance at the Vail Jazz Festival confirmed that my takes on these songs, co-arranged with one of Sarah's brilliant pianists, Bill Mays, has resonance beyond nostalgia. We aimed for equal measures of delight & emotional heft in the portrait that unfolds through story & song. I will be doing a Sarah Vaughanesque improv that my audience will be invited to contribute words & phrases for that should add some fun to the night. And if any great Boston singers or instrumentalists are in the house, they just might be pulled into the sassy fun.” Tickets are $40 for the show & $80 for dinner & the show.

Ann is incredible and perfect to do justice to the Sarah Vaughan Songbook. She emerges as a top jazz interpreter on the music scene today.
