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.

If you like Ella and Louis then this a great compilation of songs. Great listening.Good quality recording.Even if you're not sure about these two you will love it if you like easy listening jazz.

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.

This is classic stuff - what a wonderful combination of musical talent that is enjoyed across the generations - particularly wanted this CD with Louis and Ella singing together with effortless ease.

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!

I knew this would be good , but what a surprise the sound improvement on vocals and instruments was so good it took me to musical paradise.
