Customer Review

on 19 October 2012
Ella has one of the truest,sweetest and loveliest voices in jazz, capable of swinging almost anything while faithfully reproducing many standards to the highest level, adding extra lyrics and giving us the seldom heard introductions. Truthfully I haven't listened to the whole of this 4 CD set yet as I keep going back to repeat some of the gems. For your information the seven albums are Get Happy and Sings Sweet Songs For Swingers from 1959, Ella Wishes You A Swinging Christmas and Hello Love from 1960 all with full orchestral backing. Disc Three starts with Ella in Berlin (1960) - live with piano and rhythm, and including extended versions of "Mack The Knife" and "How High The Moon" and contrasts with Let No Man Write My Epitaph (1960) - much quieter with Paul Smith's piano accompaniment. Finally the Disc I've saved for later Clap Hands Here Comes Charlie (1961). This has Ella with piano and rhythm only again. Disc Four has just the one album and only lasts 50 minutes but it would be churlish to carp at short measures with such a cornucopia of riches. Tremendous value for money and a worthwhile addition to any collection.
