5.0 out of 5 stars Ella sings Like Someone in Love with Frank Devol orchestra, 10 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Like Someone in Love - feat. Stan Getz (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.
