All About Jazz
Fitzgerald mostly keeps things moving along quickly for the crowd, with much if by no means all of the energy and chops of earlier days, but it’s the slow and husky ballad “Round Midnight” that might be the most rewarding track here. […]

This concert is the perfect example of how to “swing”. The ideal combination of Ella Fitzgerald, at the height of her powers in 1979, with the Count Basie Orchestra and then accompanied by the great man himself, leads to a sublime evening with versions of Ella’s classics. […]

Remembering Ella
Ella was not in good physical shape when these albums were recorded, but the youth and energy of the young Basie musicians clearly inspired her. A Perfect Match, which was recorded live at Montreaux, reveals some of Ella’s old explosiveness. […]
