5.0 out of 5 stars Even just to listen to ..., 28 May 2009
By 
This review is from: Ella And Louis Again (Audio CD)
This CD is worth buying only to listen to their "Stompin' at Savoy" - You can truly feel how much they were enjoying singing together. As a matter of fact, it was a rehearsal, but the performance was so outstanding, it made it to the album.

Ella always sounds her best when she sings with Louis. This is not surprising at all - Pops (Louis) was Ella's hero even before she started to sing professionally. And this romantic tone matches beautifully with the voice of Louis, which is a tad rough.

In Japan, we had an even better restored version of "Ella and Louis" (no longer available... It was released to mark Ella's 75th birthday. What a cruel world). And if you listen carefully enough, you can tell that they are sharing one microphone. Because of her deep respect to Louis, Ella stands a little further to the microphone, and when it is her turn to sing, Louis gently pushes her closer to the microphone (so her voice starts a little remote at the beginning of her turns). I love Ella's modesty like this. And she was already a big star at the time of recording! What a wonderful lady she was...

No wonder Frank Sinatra was heard to say " Ella Fitzgerald is as good a musician and vocalist as anyone is going to hear for the next one hundred years"
