Meet one of jazz music's most enchanting voices. Sarah Vaughan, brought back to life for one night only. A previously unreleased live concert, remastered for the very first time. The "Divine" like you've never heard her before: playful, provocative, seductive. An intimate moment of rare emotional power.

More than 40 years have passed since the Divine Sarah Vaughan gave this concert, one of her finest. At 10 pm,  August 5, 1975. Sarah Vaughan entered the stage of the Singer Hall in Laren, the Netherlands. With her were pianist Carl Schroeder, her accompanist for more than 20 years, bassist Bob Magnusson, a highly sought-after sideman with over 150 albums to his credit and one of the most sensitive drummers in the history of jazz, Jimmy Cobb. Need we remind you that from 1958 to 1962 he was Miles Davis' drummer, the one who recorded Kind of Blue (1959), a masterpiece?

The woman who was known throughout her career as "The Divine Sarah" was 51 years old and at the peak of her talent, the apex of her energy. Her vocal range remained exceptional. Provocative, seductive and often plain funny, she conquered her audience with a succession of songs, exuding potency with "Round Midnight," tenderness with "There Will Never Be Another You," vigour with "Everything Must Change." She wound up her medley with the touching "Moonlight in Vermont," and ended with "Tenderly."

And she slipped off the stage as discretely as she had entered. The audience was up on its feet, clapping wildly. From the fast paced opening number, "The Man I Love" through her incomparable version of "Lover Man," never since bettered by any other singer, to "Tenderly," the finale, the Divine Sarah was in a state of grace, sending shivers down the spines of all listening.
