Of all the critiques that have been written about Ella Fitzgerald, East Coast music critic Tony Mastrianni’s perhaps best defined her very special song stylings. “In the case of Ella Fitzgerald you have something unique. There continues to be no one like her, no one who uses a voice so completely like a musical instrument. . . . She can stray from the melody, sing around it, and ...

5.0 out of 5 stars A helluva lot of Ella and her fellas 1 Aug 2013
By MarkR
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, what can I say? Working out about 72p a CD, the chance to get this bumper set from the queen was too good to pass up. The box is a bit smaller than an lp and about an inch thick, the cd's come in cardboard sleeves, partitioned into 4 lots of 12.
Now the music. If you know Ella, you know you're getting some of the definitive interpretations of a lot of classics/standards/evergreens and this covers the lot - cheeky early novelty songs, cool jazz, big band swing etc. It's not a complete anthology by any means, and trying to catalogue some of these onto the ipod as "proper" albums has meant a bit of detective work (but only if you let such things worry you, as they do me...). Just a great set from the greatest voice. Ever

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection, Great Price 3 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To be honest, we are talking Ella here, 48 terrific CD's for 34.99 (at present). I love it, can't say enough about it. Packaging is nice for the price, album sized booklet included inside with track listings, dates and song writers. If you love Ella and don't have much of her work at the moment it is a terrific purchase, you can't go wrong.

This spans all of Ella's career at Verve Records and includes a wide selection of memorable performances, live and studio. They include Hernando's Hideaway, the Berlin live version of Mack the Knife and some fabulous sounds on Perdido. A definite for any Ella Fellas.
