Whoever decided to put pianist Marty Paich and Ella Fitzgerald together in the studio in 1966 deserves a bit of credit for the great music on Whisper Not. Together, Fitzgerald and Paich deliver a dozen beautifully sung, carefully arranged standards. […]

As a rule with Ellaand it’s true also this time, her records are not the place to look for bottomless sadness and despair. Ella the entertainer is out there making sure we’re having a great time. And she’s very successful at it. […]

Maybe the reason I like this recording so well has to do with when I first heard it, but I don’t think so. I think this is one of the best jazz vocal albums ever made. […]
