Product Description

Product Description

FITZGERALD ELLA / ARMSTRONG LO

Amazon.co.uk

What we have here is the mating of honey and molasses. Or is it the sound of melted butter over gravel? Never mind--sweeter, more joyous music has never been recorded. You can't listen to these two without smiling. It's such an inevitable pairing that you wonder what titanic forces of nature could have kept Ella and Satchmo apart until they made this record together in 1957, accompanied by the Oscar Peterson trio and Buddy Rich on drums. The songs are standards--extraordinary standards, of course, like "Moonlight in Vermont" and "A Foggy Day"--but nirvana is reached on "Cheek to Cheek". In one word--Heaven. --Jim Emerson

Format: Audio CD
Now this one is a no-brainer:

EVERYBODY knows by now how great idea was teaming Ella (at her peak) and Louis (close enough to his peak) on this album,
with a killer back-up group lead by Oscar Peterson at his rhythmiest (yes, I know it's not a real word). I'm writing about the original CD from the early 2000s I bought, not about later SACD editions (where these reviews tend to end up in addition to the place I post them),
so I can't talk about the technological finesse ...
I'm just claiming this is a beautiful jazz album, happily matched only by Ella And Louis Again, another masterpiece. Groveling expressiveness of Louis' voice is matched beautifully with the melodic brilliance of Ella's jubilant voice and the rest is history.
p.s.
Thank you mr. Norman Granz for making this album possible.

Both vinyl are excellent and I'm very glad I decided on vinyl instead of CD's
