Columbia's Sarah Vaughan entry in its Love Songs compilation series is a stellar collection of tracks recorded from 1949 to 1953 that rank among the best of her career. Included are such gorgeous ballads as "Come Rain or Come Shine," "East of the Sun (And West of the Moon)," and "It Might As Well Be Spring." Interestingly, vocalist Vaughan recorded many of these tracks with pianist Jimmy Jones' band, which included the young up-and-coming trumpeter Miles Davis. These are must-hear tracks for even casual listeners of Vaughan, and Love Songs is fantastic place for the novice to begin investigating her.
