Ella Fitzgerald – Jazz Spectrum Vol. 1

The Beam Me Up Scotty’s Series, Part 7/25 (LP)

I grew up on Ella, so this find pleased me greatly. Lots of hits here, like Mack The Knife, Hello Dolly, Love For Sale, and many others too, like Something’s Gotta Give, Hallelujah I Love Him So, and Let’s Do It. All are given that sweet Ella treatment that makes me always desire more.

The current crop of jazz singers definitely has talent, yet nobody can remotely touch an icon like Ella. This set proves it over and over again.


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.
