Ella Fitzgerald: The Very Best Of The Cole Porter Songbook CD

Ella Fitzgerald

Verve, 2007

On February 7, 1956, two weeks after Ella Fitzgerald's first session for Verve Records, she was back in the studio with Buddy Bregman and an orchestra recording what is arguably the defining record of her career, Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Cole Porter Songbook that helped Verve to become the quintessential jazz label of the 1950s. Ella, Norman Granz, and Bregman went to Capitol’s studio in Hollywood and spent three days recording what was to be Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Cole Porter Songbook. The combination of Ella and Porter is irresistible and whether up-tempo or down-tempo, Ella’s three-octave range voice soars effortlessly as she makes each song come to life. It was all helped by the cream of LA session men and Buddy Bregman’s arrangement that oozes sophistication way beyond his twenty-four years. It is a perfect record.
