Passing Strangers, 1957

Billy Eckstine discovered Sarah when he was in Earl Hines Orchestra. Later, Billy formed his own band in 1944 and he brought her in his band as an exclusive singer.

There is a song titled hPassing Strangersh which almost Japanese singers don't sing. Billy Eckstine and Sarah Vaughan recorded this song by duet in Mercury EP record in 1957.

This song was wrote by Mel Mitchell/ Rita Mann. Mel Mitchel is known as the writer of English words of Mexican Bolero "Sabo A Mi".
