AllMusic Review by

Passport Audio's THE BEST IS YET TO COME is a budget-priced collection of 11 tracks by the legendary jazz vocalist Sarah Vaughan. Although the lack of liner notes or recording information leaves listeners somewhat in the dark, the tunes on this disc presumably date back to the early 1960s, a time when the dulcet-voiced Vaughan was deftly juggling pop and jazz standards, represented here by the vibrant "Baubles, Bangles, and Beads" and the lovelorn "I Cover the Waterfront." While many of these songs are featured in a better light on Roulette's YOU'RE MINE YOU, it's fairly difficult to ever go wrong when Vaughan is at the mic. This collection should appeal to diehards and newcomers alike.
