“Getting Sassy” Event to Honor “The Divine One”

JazzBuffalo is proud to present a special event commemorating the 100th Centennial Celebration of one of the most iconic voices in jazz history, Sarah Vaughan. Join us on Wednesday, May 15th at 7 pm at the Seneca One Auditorium for an unforgettable evening featuring vocalist DeeAnn DiMeo, joined by the stellar Nixon, Croft, Goretti Trio and the extraordinary jazz saxophonist, Dave Schiavone.

Sarah Vaughan, often known as “The Divine One” or “Sassy,” left an indelible mark on the jazz world with her unparalleled talent and distinctive voice. As Will Friedwald aptly describes, “From the moment she won the Apollo Theater amateur contest at age 18, Sarah Vaughan immediately joined the pantheon of great jazz singers.”

Vaughan’s voice transcended genres, effortlessly blending jazz, blues, and gospel. She possessed operatic chops that lent a unique depth and richness to her interpretations of classic Great American Songbook standards by Gershwin, Porter, and Ellington. Yet, despite her divine vocal prowess, Vaughan remained grounded in her humanity, infusing her performances with a playful spontaneity and infectious swing.

At the centennial celebration, DeeAnn DiMeo will pay homage to Vaughan’s timeless legacy with soulful renditions of her most beloved songs. From sultry ballads to swinging uptempo numbers, DiMeo will capture the essence of “The Divine One” and honor her contributions to the history of jazz.
