Savina and all that Gentle Jazz
The album contains her two 1958 Best Sellers, How Come You Do Me Like You Do and Deed I Do from the Album "Sarah (Vaughn) & Savina (Cattiva)" as well as her signature versions of You Go To My Head, In My Solitude and the passionate Body and Soul.
The balance of the material are songs from the 1930's, 40's and early 50's that are most associated with the Cabaret and Supper Club singer and her group, the Jazztet which performed in major-city up-scale hotels and night clubs from the 50's through the mid-70's.
