Vaughan is in terrific form throughout both dates, with the songs mostly running around the three-minute mark. This CD is well worth acquiring, though it is out of print. […]

xhua @ RateYourMusic
The heartfelt “Lover Man” is one of the finest song I ever heard. The beautiful and spacious vocal from Sarah extends perfectly with the small group trio. […]

JazzTimes
Her “Can’t Take That Away” is the stellar centerpiece, but fine renditions of “Body and Soul,” “All of Me” and particularly “Pennies From Heaven” are near-equally stunning. […]
