Whatever Lola wants , Lola gets - Sarah Vaughan


Sarah Vaughan , aka "Sassy" , was and will always be one of the most wondrous voices of the 20th Century...
She balanced between the jazzy Billie , and the more bluesy Ella , with an amazing vocal range ,and a totaly individual style that none of the above could reach...or imitate !
Influenced by traditional gospel , she created her own unique style , and she was surprised when the critics wanted to categorize her as a "jazz" singer , or a "blues" singer....
Later on , the term "bop" was invented , and "Sassy" became one of its pioneers....
However you wanna call it , "Sassy" was the ultimate pop star of her era ...
I imagine her , performing Estelle's "American Boy" or Adele's "Chasing Pavements" ....It would have been too damn easy for her....
On the other hand , i'm not quite sure if Duffy [ the girl who faced a decent record store at the age of 18 ! ! ! ! ] could perform half of the following song without "begging"her sound engineer for help , or God for "Mercy" ! ! ! What a waste....
