All-star medleys (Ella, Sarah Vaughan, Aretha Franklin etc)

This is a really fun trio featuring Sarah Vaughan (aged 55), Pearl Bailey (aged 61) and Ella Fitzgerald aged (62 or 64 depending on which date you believe). Despite the rather raucous audio quality, it's easy to that the trio brought the house down as the three legends got together for one time only. And learning something that complex as they headed towards the final stages of their career was quite remarkable.

and if that isn't enough for you, how about a quartet of peggy lee, sarah vaughan, roberta flack and aretha franklin from 1973 - a show that should really be on DVD!

Vocal talent doesn't come any better than the collective brilliance of the above performers and performances -- and they compliment each other perfectly. Nowadays, Sarah Vaughan is probably the least remembered here, but she was an incredible singer who recorded an absolute wealth of material.
