March 27, 1924: Incomparable jazz vocalist Sarah Vaughan is born. She shares a birth date with: film maker Quentin Tarantino (b. 1963); and pop music diva Mariah Carey (b. 1970).

The band generally referred to as The 'Original' Meters to differentiate between The Funky Meters. This is the second track off their first, self titled 1969...

Sarah Vaughan plays the piano as Duke Ellington and Billy Eckstine look on, circa 1950. The Newark, NJ-born Ms. Vaughan studied piano as a child and went on to win first prize at the Apollo Theater’s famous Amateur Night competition. Billy Eckstine was in the audience that night and before long, Ms. Vaughan would sing with Mr. Eckstine in his band. Her recording of “The Duke Ellington Songbook, Vol. 1 and 2,” is still unmatched for its beauty and brilliance. Photo by Gilles Pet
