Re: Ella recommendations?

My first response to this question is that you can't really go wrong with this songbird. I really enjoy her collaborations with Louis Armstrong. Verve did a compilation "Best of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong" (314 537 909-2). Mobile Fidelity released another compilation, "Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong-Ella and Louis Again" on their Original Master Recording series (UDCD 2-651) that is well-mastered and includes many winners.

The above are excellent. Verve also has a "Best Of The Song Books" collection of several albums- all excellent with great musicians and arrangements (314 531 762-2, 314 519 804-2). And Verve, "The Siver Collection" (823 445-2). These were the easiest to dig out right now, but like you said, there are hundreds. She was amazing and much beloved by all the greats.
