This is a perfect summation of three great albums by two of the greatest jazz artists of all time. If you've never heard any of Ella Fitgerald and Louis Armstrong's work together then you've been missing a real treat. If nothing else these tracks are absolute master classes in jazz singing, and playing. The band lead by the brilliantly restrained Oscar Peterson act as a wonderfully subtle foil for the two stars, and Louis Armstrong plays some of his most beautifully subdued and nuanced trumpet solos. Every track shows a level of sophistication that seems to be almost entirely missing from todays Pop music, and they were Pop music when the albums were first released. Apart from anything else there's something incredibly romantic about these songs and any music collection that doesn't include them will just lack that certain something.

Isn't definitive, misses off about 5-6 songs that they did together as seen on the The Complete Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong on Verve (CD, 3 Discs) The Complete Ella And Louis On Verve
