42 of 43 people found the following review helpful By C. FULLER TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 19 Nov 2008
Format: Audio CD
This 3 CD set is sure to find favour containing as it does 2 complete songbooks, Irving Berlin and Duke Ellington. Recorded in 1958 and 1957 these have been continually popular since their original release. The Irving Berlin album has Paul Weston conducting and the Duke Ellington songbook has Duke Ellington in command. I suspect that it is the Duke Ellington set that will make this an instant must have. The sound quality is excellent throughout and with 2 huge songbooks we are talking of an equally huge running time of almost 240 minutes. Interestingly if you want to purchase the Ellington Songbook it will cost at least twice the price alone, making this very good value indeed. As with all the Not Now 3CD sets they are now slim line packaged and this one includes orchestral credits, dates and liner notes by Michael Heatley. Look out for other Ella Fitzgerald releases on Not Now.

Read the other reviews and thought they must be exaggerated. I was very pleasantly surprised to find they were'nt. Well remastered these CDs are worth many times the asking price.

The best of popular song by one of the best singers of her time. The Ellington songs give scope for her famous scat singing.

This set is excllent value and has been very well transcribed from the original sources. There are only a very few minor audio glitches that do not in any way detract from the music etc.

The first disc and-a-bit, is devoted to the music of Irving Berlin, a genuis without doubt. Ella's singing here is first class. Alhtough one normally thinks of her as a jazz singer who does well with up tempo numbers, she is nevertheless very effective with the Berlin ballads, i.e Always and How about me ? for example.

The Ellington tracks which fill the remainder of disc 2 and the whole of disc 3, are also excelent. Some of it has examples of her scat singing, which is not a favourite of mine, but the rest of the tracks are well worth listening to.

A real treat indeed !
