Ella Fitzgerald – Daydream: Best Of The Duke Ellington Songbook

This is also a 3 CD box set, but this 1 CD version I have here culls tracks from the box set as a sort of hits of the hits. I don’t envy anyone that task, I mean, how do you leave any songs behind? Exactly.

Here we have three of my favourite things: Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, and Verve Records. Hot damn!

These tracks are gorgeous, every single one. The liner notes describe Ella’s voice as a “warm caress,” and I couldn’t agree more. The Ellington orchestra absolutely nails every nuance and mood. The sound quality is really, really good.

Freaking fantastic.
