I have had a problem with this Opera. I come from a blues, jazz background and know and love several of the songs from Porgy and Bess, like Summertime. However when I have tried to listen to recordings of the whole production they are sung and produced in a very operatic way. This recording has all the songs but sung by two of the greatest jazz voices of the middle twentieth century in a great "jazz" style. I have discovered some wonderful songs that I haven't come across before.

The music of the Porgy and Bess soundtrack virtually transports you back to the deep south. With "modern day lullabies" such as summertime this is a perfect album to sit back and relax to. Allowing the classic and original vocal tones of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong to lull you away to a warm and romantic place.

Although this recording has been available for many years, I confess to ignoring it in the past, as, apart from "Summertime" and "It Aint Necessarily So" the songs of Porgy and Bess didn't appeal to me much. That's changed thanks to this version by two of my favourite jazz artists.
I saw the CD in a charity shop at a knockdown price and thought I'd give it a try and I'm glad I did.
This is a superb recording in every respect. Both artists give their all,so you are treated to amazing renditions of all the songs in the "opera" with Ella in particular in great voice. Her vocal technique and expression suit her songs beautifully. Has anyone else ever sung "Summertime" with such feeling? Louis too, perhaps surprisingly, given his jazz background, handles his (mainly) non-jazz pieces with complete commitment and understanding.
The lush sounding orchestra and the prime participants are beautifully recorded in perfect stereo (hard to believe it's 54 years old). My only very small gripe is that Louis' trumpet sounds a bit distant, off mike. But that's a minor quibble.
If, like me, you've left it late to acquire this great recording, get it now, as a perfect companion to Miles' definitive instrumental version.

I saw the show performed by the South African opera two years ago so when I saw this cd I had to have it for the car. I love it, Ella fitzgerald's voice is perfect.
