"Live From Monterey: Sarah Vaughan." Sony. $29.95. The incomparable Vaughan sound decorates seven songs, backed by the Mike Wofford Trio. At times her magnificence is unencumbered; other moments--smacking a kiss in the middle of "Send In the Clowns," interrupting herself during "If You Could See Me Now"--are simply mood-breakers. The camera takes us through Cannery Row and other local vistas while Vaughan scats "Autumn Leaves." Midway through the 54 minutes, Joe Williams, backed by Clark Terry and a small jam band, sings a slow blues and Ellington's "Come Sunday" in his unaffected and totally personal manner. Information: (212) 757-4990.
