I’m not much of a fan of singers such as this. Vocal jazz doesn’t really do anything for me. This album didn’t really change my view of the genre. Ella’s singing was quite good throughout, but it just kind of bores me. […]

Incidentally, she does not miss the opportunity of doing her impression of Louis Armstrong, for years a proven crowd pleaser. It gave audiences an indefinable feel-good factor that added significantly to her in-person charmand it can still be felt, decades later, on compact disc. […]

Fitzgerald is brilliant throughout the well-rounded set, with highlights including “Misty” (a version very different from Sarah Vaughan‘s), “The Lady Is a Tramp,” “Too Darn Hot,” and a scat-filled “How High the Moon.” This is essential music. […]
