Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday are rightly considered today as two of the most influential jazz singers - and the third in this famous line-up is Sarah Lois Vaughan (*1924), fondly known as Sassy. Right at the beginning of her career, Sassy sang (and also played the piano!) in the orchestras led by Earl Hines and Billy Eckstein, but in 1945 she started on a career as a soloist in the main. Her recordings of predominantly slow, popular ballads - made over the five years (1949-1954) that she recorded for Columbia Records - resulted in her breakthrough.
