This review is from: Ella and Louis (and Oscar Too) (Audio CD)
In August 1956 two good friends went into a Los Angeles studio with four other respected jazz musicians to record what was to become something very special. Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong had come to record an album of duets and they were joined by the Oscar Peterson Trio (Peterson on piano, Ray Brown on bass and Herb Ellis on guitar) and drummer Buddy Rich. The bulk of their efforts together are represented on this 2 CD collection. The set also includes some additional tracks that were not featured on the original releases. All original recordings digitally remastered, attractively packaged and with liner notes too. A gigantic total running time of 138 minutes rounds off this definitive collection. Aimed at collectors and those younger folk who have no doubt heard of both artists this is a most welcome addition at budget price.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing melting pot of talent!, 29 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Ella and Louis (and Oscar Too) (Audio CD)
Individually, I am a huge fan of Ella, Louis and Oscar, so to find them all exquisitely melded together on this CD was akin to that feeling when you find the £10 note you forgot about in your top pocket! Plenty of classics included here, and some unusual takes on jazz standards. Highly recommended, 5 stars.

Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, the two best jazz singers backed by Oscar Peterson, the supreme accompanist. Every track could not be bettered. The perfect CD! And what an amazing bargain!
