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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars PORTER'S LYRICS SANG BY THE FIRST LADY OF SONG! 6 Dec 1999
By "scotsladdie" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ella's superb interpretations of Porter's songs are truly something which no lover of popular music can resist; from "Begin the Beguine" to "Love for Sale"(v.II) these songs are timelessly sophisticated and no one can sing them as beautifully as Ella! A must!

5.0 out of 5 stars she's the top 5 Jun 2000
By "pspa" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
With the exception of Miss Otis Regrets which is too slow for my taste, these songs are all sung impeccably. The combination of Porter's incredibly witty and daring lyrics, great arrangements, and Ella's crystal clear voice and brilliant phrasing make for a great record. She may not be emotional like Billie Holiday but in my book between the purity of the voice and her timing and phrasing noone does it like Ella (for example, in Always True to You in My Fashion Ella just KNOWS that the key verse is the one beginning "There's an oilman known as Tex" so she gives it a different emphasis. The sound quality is phenomenal too.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Lady of Song and Great American Songwriter 31 Mar 2000
By Donald Beale - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ella's first album in the celebrated Songbook series done for Verve is still one of my favorites. Who could resist Ella's pure voice coupled with Cole Porter's wonderful melodies? The warmth and sweetness of Ella's voice comes through in "All Through the Night," "Do I Love You?," and her incomparable rendition of "Miss Otis Regrets." Other songs swing, such as "Anything Goes" and "Too Darn Hot." I've heard criticisms that the orchestra fails to match the top-notch arrangements of some of the later Songbooks accompanied by other bandleaders, but Buddy Bregman is no hack. The real stars here are Ella and Cole Porter. I never hear one of these songs performed without comparing it to Ella's version. This album is timeless and beautful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime 26 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Holy mackerel, no one's reviewed this yet?! If you get one Ella Fitzgerald record, this is it. She personified warmth, nowhere better than on this record. Oh, and by the way, I'd never realized how thoroughly Cole Porter has penetrated American culture until I listened to this record a couple dozen times. To this day, Cole Porter is part of the background music of American life, and that's because of this record.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Ella you can get 8 Nov 2008
By Jason Homorody - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This has to be my favorite Ella Fitzgerald CD of them all. There are frankly no weak songs on this entire CD. The CD is strongest at the beginning front-loading all the best songs there with the strongest efforts (contrary to another reviewers taste) Miss Otis Regrets, and the best versions of All Thru the Night and Anything Goes that I have ever heard. It is almost as if Cole Porter wrote these songs for Ella herself. Even some of the weaker efforts, if thats what they can be called at the end of the CD are worthwhile. There are times when you buy a CD and you end up saying, wow i could have just bought three or four songs of this for cheaper. Here, you will get your moneys worth.
