To my mind Ella and Louis can do no wrong especially with the backing of Oscar Petersen. Great for the car and to remind me of the Great American Songbook. Their diction, style and knowhow put most modern singers to shame.
I bought this primarily for CD3 - "Porgy and Bess" which I'd wanted for some time but was equally chuffed with the first two discs - Louis and Ella both in fine form , over three hours of music on three beautifully re-mastered CD's and all for a bargain price. As a blast of classic jazz it takes some beating.
I do not know how I can have lived without these discs for so long. Discs one and two are really out of this world and then the Porgy and Bess sets new heights. I am just thrilled every time I listen to these two sing, and the standard of the arrangements and the playing is just faultless. It is just one of the best sets I can think you can buy and at a bargain price.
