Sassy Swings the Tivoli is a 1963 live album by American jazz singer Sarah Vaughan and her trio, produced by Quincy Jones.[2]

Reception[edit]

The initial Billboard review from October 12 1963 commented Vaughan was "really swinging on this album", and described it as a "must for Sassy's fans" and that there was "radiation on both sides of the footlights".[3]

Scott Yanow on Allmusic.com gave the album four and a half stars out of five and commented that the album was a "gem" that this "wonderful live session" was "one of her very best of the 1960s".[2]
