Two of them are the late Shirley Horn and Sharon Clark. Sharon has a 2008 release, entitled, Do it Again — My Tribute to Shirley Horn. The Jazz Times said that Clark not only conjures up memories of the Divine Sarah Vaughan; she does them justice. I never thought I'd hear a singer with the range, musicality and command of tone and timbre that was Sarah at her best, but now I have." The Washington Post calls her powerful yet supple . . . soulful, swinging . . . wonderfully nimble . . . dreamy." Washingtonian Magazine has labeled her a Jazz Master.
