Biography

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 ...

By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is one of at least three CDs that I know of in which Ella Fitzgerald was accompanied by the Frank DeVol Orchestra. DeVol acted as arranger conductor for a number of popular singers in the 1950s and `60s - Doris Day, Vic Damone, Nat Cole, Sarah Vaughan, Tony Bennett and others. This CD features the saxophone of Stan Getz on some tracks. The arrangements by DeVol are relaxed and sumptuous and Ella's singing is at its best. The tracks were recorded in 1957 while Ella was singing her way through the Great American Songbook albums with several other arrangers. I really couldn't pick a favourite track because they are all great. I think all the tracks are `standards', though some, like `Hurry home' and `What will I tell my heart', are not often recorded. There are 19 tracks on the CD - the original 15 from the LP and four bonus tracks - `I'll never be the same', `Lost in a fog', `Everything happens to me', and `So rare'. If you enjoy this, try the LPs and now CDs Ella Sings Songs for Swingers and Hello Love, both backed by Frank DeVol and the orchestra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ella, no frills 21 Mar 2012
By GlynLuke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
It took me many years to come round to Ella`s way of singing. I tend to avoid scat, or the more blatantly `jazz vocalist` style, preferring Tony Bennett or Sinatra to, say, Mel Torme, brilliant though the latter was, and Peggy Lee or Dinah Washington to Carmen McRae or, until relatively recently, Ella.
Tastes change - though I still steer clear of the `scatty` side of jazz singing. There`s little of that on this beautifully sung and played 1957 album of standards, on four of which no less a figure than Stan Getz plays sax. The two suit each other perfectly.
One draw for me is the inclusion of a handful of my favourite songs: More Than You Know (a wonderful song I`ve loved by Judy Garland and, in her `audition piece` in The Fabulous Baker Boys, actress Michelle Pfeiffer), We`ll Be Together Again and What`s New (both of which I knew in their benchmark versions by Sinatra), How Long Has This Been Going On, I Thought About You, and the title track - which has been covered more recently, delightfully as well as eccentrically, by Bjork.
All of the nineteen songs here - of which the last four are extras not on the original release, bringing this disc to a generous 70 minutes - are sung with Ella`s customary integrity and adherence to the song`s meaning and mode of expression. She can be as expressive as any singer, but never overdoes anything, at least not on this flawless album. Her girlish quality has often been remarked upon, and it`s displayed on many of these songs, not least Like Someone In Love itself. These are all ballads, slow or mid-tempo, and it must surely be one of Ella`s most coherent recordings, intelligently programmed from start to finish.
This is singing! She makes it sound so simple and effortless.

5.0 out of 5 stars SMOOTH AND DIFFERENT 19 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
Have most of the songbooks so this was a lovely find on Amazon as I have not seen this collection anywhere else. Most of the songs you will all know, but as this is a later recording the quality is very good, very late night sounds from Ella and perfect for a cozy night in.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Jewel of an Album 1 Sep 2014
By Sassy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is my all-time favorite. Great for a romantic evening, for making a hectic drive home so relaxing, for just settling down
after a long day. With the first cut, There's a Lull in My Life, I can feel stress just sliding away. Ella is at her best - her voice is pure silk and the selection of songs is mellow and lovely. Stan Getz just makes it even better - what a gem.
