She won the Downbeat Student Music Award for Best Collegiate Vocalist in 2003. Gazarek released her first album, Yours, in 2005. The album was a critical and commercial success with a top 10 ranking in the Billboard Traditional Jazz Charts as well as being the top album download in iTunes for Jazz in Germany and France. In a poll by JazzTimes, readers voted Gazarek as the third Best New Jazz Artist.

She released her second album, Return to You in 2007. Don Heckman of the Los Angeles Times said Gazarek is "the next important jazz singer." In 2014, Sara launched a Pledge Music campaign with her longtime collaborator, Josh Nelson, to record a duo project of their original music and arrangements.
