I think it was just hearing Sarah Vaughan sing “Darn that Dream” that felt like just touching God's water from the ocean on an 100 degree Fahrenheit day. It was beautiful. Sarah Vaughan's voice was amazing. She was the Leontyne Price of jazz. I experienced the desire of wanting to do the crazy riffs she was doing in it. Dope! A favorite song of mine ever since I heard it.
Sarah Vaughan's waves of sound was like music magnetically touching my heart. I love her a lot and everything she did as a singer was so dope. Especially in "Darn that Dream."
She put a stamp on every single song that she touched. It's crazy how my friend knew I loved hervoice so much that he gave me a Sarah Vaughan
compilation with like 400 songs she sung and it was
one of the most amazing gifts I have ever received. So
many songs I love that she sang but this one, still my
favorite. She killed it on this one. And so, I tried
singing it one Monday night at Stop Time in Brooklyn
with the amazing pianist Lafayette Harris Jr; at his jazz
open mic night actually. Really great vibe there. Check out the video
