No Count Sarah is a 1958 studio album by the American jazz singer Sarah Vaughan.

The title refers to the fact that Vaughan was accompanied by the Count Basie Orchestra, but without Count Basie. Reviewing the album for Allmusic, Scott Yanow gave it a four-and-a-half stars rating and called it "one of the best of all Sarah Vaughan recordings. Highly recommended".[1] It features "astounding vocalese"[2] from Vaughan on tracks including "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" and "No 'Count Blues".
