Notes and Editorial Reviews

The first of three collaborative albums that Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong would record for Verve Records, the original Ella and Louis, released in 1956, radiates charm. Backed by the Oscar Peterson Quartet, Ella’s voice soars above, tasteful and crystal clear. Louis provides his trademark wheeze as an effective counterpoint to Ella’s voice, and when singing together, the two make the perfect pairing, perhaps the most effective duo ever in vocal jazz.
