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 ...

Product Description

Review

Ella Fitzgerald Sings Irving Berlin is now a double CD featuring peerless interpretations of compositions that were already monuments to classic songcraft, even half a century ago. Thirty-one originals are now augmented by seven bonus tracks that embrace Fitzgeralds's enduring working relationships with Louis Armstrong and bandleader Chick Webb. --Sunday Express

Without doubt Ella was America's most technically accomplished jazz singer and aptly deserved the title of First Lady of Music. Her tribute to Irving Berlin was recorded 50 years ago as part of her songbook series. But her renditions of classic songs like All By Myself and Puttin' On The Ritz remain timeless. As a Christmas bonus there are seven extra tracks and four of them are duets with the late great Louis Armstrong . 10/10 --Scunthorpe Telegraph

5.0 out of 5 stars Ella sings the Irving Berlin Songbook 27 Nov 2010
By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Irving Berlin Songbook

Out of some 1500 tunes for which Berlin composed both words and music, only about 10% are frequent visitors to the concert or CD repertoire. Well, we have 32 of them here, sung by Ella to the arrangements and accompaniment of the Paul Weston Orchestra. Most of the tunes on the double CD disc are taken from shows or films that Berlin scored (often for Fred Astaire), though a couple did see the light of day in Tin Pan Alley.

Many of the `standards' are here: `Let's face the music and dance', `Cheek to cheek', `Change partners', `Reaching for the moon', and so on. The Tin Pan Alley tunes include his first hit, `Alexander's ragtime band', the `Russian lullaby', and the perennial favourite, `Always'.

Berlin had a somewhat difficult early love life. His first wife, Dorothy Goetz, died shortly after their honeymoon in Cuba in 1912: the cathartic `When I lost you' that he composed at the time isn't included here. But `All by myself' from a 1921 revue is. He also had a difficult time courting his second wife because she was the heiress of an electric distributing system magnate who was a Catholic and didn't think a popular Jewish immigrant tunesmith was good enough for his daughter. These difficulties are reflected in some of Berlin's songs of the time. [Others appear on Sinatra's All Alone CD].

The wistful `Suppertime' is also featured here. It comes from the 1933 show (revue) As Thousands Cheer portraying scenes based on national newspaper headlines, a revue that also gave us `Easter parade' and `Heat wave'. `Suppertime' is a black American woman's lament for her lynched husband.

This double CD is an attractive package that will appeal to any Berlin or Ella Fitzgerald fans.

Format:Audio CD
Great job producers must have had to choose from the immense catalog of Berlin. However, here are the most representative or known of his songs. When we hear the songsbooks of Ella we must remember that she sings the songs as they were conceived by their authors. It means, she does not make improvisations or her own swings. It's good to keep in mind. But Berlin's songs are good and the sound and the performances are excellent.

Gran trabajo deben haber tenido los productores para escoger de entre el inmenso catálogo de Berlin. Sin embargo, aquí están las mas representativas o conocidas de sus canciones. Cuando escuchamos los songsbooks de Ella debemos tener presente que ella canta las canciones como fueron concebidas por sus autores. Es decir, ella no hace las improvisaciones o los swings propios de ella. Es bueno tenerlo en cuenta. Pero las canciones de Berlin son buenas y el sonido y las interpretaciones son excelentes.
