Here is an instruction manual for singers. Phrasing, intonation, breath control, taste, musicianship, restraint, humor; it's all here. What with "jazz singing" wandering all over the lot as the century staggers to a close, let's hope that The Complete (what dimensions that phrase has in this context) Ella and Louis will be used for serious course work, and not just by beginners. The package contains everything from the LPs Ella & Louis, Ella and Louis Again and Porgy and Bess, plus two tracks of Fitzgerald sitting in with Armstrong's band at the Hollywood Bowl. The contrast between her polished perfection and his rough perfection is delicious. Armstrong's trumpet playing, nearing its last full burst of glory, is as moving as his voice.The songs are by the cream of American song writers, including Gershwin, Berlin, Porter, Arlen, Ronnell, Duke and Kern. They have never been sung better.

There is no dearth of live Ella Fitzgerald recordings. What makes this two-disc documentation of a 1964 French festival appearance special is the chance, thanks to the addition of a wealth of previously unreleased music, to hear her performances of the same basic set from successive nights. Basking in the presence of trumpet giant Roy Eldridge, Ella breezes through an appealing, varied program that includes favorites such as "Mack the Knife" and "A-Tisket, A-Tasket," big band classics including "Shiny Stockings" and "Perdido," and contemporary tunes such as "People" and "Can't Buy Me Love." As ever, Ella is best scatting and skittering her way into the audience's heart, particularly when she lets her hair down during her extended encores. And as supported by a rhythm section including pianist Tommy Flanagan, she's in very good form on such ballads as Mack Gordon's "Somewhere in the Night" as well. Viva la Ella. –Lloyd Sachs

Ella Fitzgerald performed this song set at Ronnie Scott's in London in April of 1974 shortly after resuming her career. She had been battling to save her eyesight and she won; but the audience members got the huge payoff the night Ella recorded this live at Ronnie's Scott's. Ella is even accompanied by Joe Pass on guitar and Tommy Flanagan on the piano–an auspicious event! ~ Amazon

Recorded in 1957, Ella & Louis Again re-teams Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong after the success of their first album and a popular series of concerts at the Hollywood Bowl the previous year. Stylistically, Fitzgerald and Armstrong had very different histories; he started out in Dixieland before branching out into classic jazz and swing, whereas Fitzgerald started out as a swing-oriented big-band vocalist before becoming an expert bebopper…

The 4 disc set "The Legendary Decca Recordings" is a fantastic collection of 80 songs that Ella Fitzgerald recorded while at Decca records. The earliest material dates from 1938 and goes up to 1955. Let me first state that there is not a bad song in this collection. Some of what you'll hear are standards, some will be lesser known or maybe totally unknown songs, but everything is thoroughly enjoyable. The sound quality is incredible; this material is 45-60 years old, but it might as well have been recorded yesterday. I'm not kidding, it's that good.

It should come as no surprise that the first collaboration between Ella and Louis was so successful that it was quickly followed by a sequel—and a double album, no less. Even the dumbest A&R man could anticipate the potential magic in the pairing; both singers were at the peak of their popularity in 1957, straying from their jazz roots yet becoming influential and noteworthy interpreters of popular song in the process. Both share a penchant for mirthful clowning and light banter, yet Armstrong’s burnished growl and Ella’s brassy swagger couldn’t be more different and still complement each other superbly. Make no mistake, this is clearly a vocal album—the only solos are Armstrong’s, and they’re few and far between—yet the music choices and delivery are enough to sustain the entire package. ~ AllAboutJazz

I believe that "Ella Returns to Berlin" is simply the best of the live concerts–far better than the concert the year before, in 1960, this concert shows Ella to be more fun, more in command, but just as loved. The concert is eroneously called, "Ella Comes Back to Berlin" by Norman Granz in the introduction. But once Ella takes the stage, there are no more errors–only breath-taking moments of live jazz. Special mention must go to guitarist Herb Ellis who is given prominence here. On some tracks it's just Ella and the guitarist you hear, which really adds a sense of intimacy to what must have been a very large concert hall. The song selection shows more variety and range this time. Ella adds a Jerome Kern medley which really melts your heart with its poignancy. Who said Ella can't sing with any emotion like Billie Holiday? This CD certainly proves Ella was Billie's equal in the jazz pantheon.

"The First Lady of Song," Ella Fitzgerald was arguably the finest female jazz singer of all time (although some may vote for Sarah Vaughan or Billie Holiday). Blessed with a beautiful voice and a wide range, Fitzgerald could outswing anyone, was a brilliant scat singer, and had near-perfect elocution; one could always understand the words she sang…
