Two Original Albums Plus Bonus Tracks!

Dubbed "The First Lady of Song," Ella Fitzgerald was the most popular female jazz singer in the United States for more than half a century. Her voice was flexible, wide-ranging, accurate and ageless. She could sing sultry ballads, sweet jazz and imitate every instrument in an orchestra. She worked with all the jazz greats, from Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Nat King Cole, to Frank Sinatra, Dizzy Gillespie and Benny Goodman. Or rather, some might say all the jazz greats had the pleasure of working with Ella.

This 2LP-set from Vinyl Passion collects Fitzgerald's two essential 1961 collaborations with arranger/conductor extraordinaire Nelson Riddle. The ideal pair had previously joined forces on Fitzgerald's acclaimed 1959 album Ella Fitzgerald Sings the George and Ira Gershwin Songbook. Swings Brightly earned Fitzgerald a Grammy Award for Best Vocal Performance, Female and both recordings find Ella in absolute peak form singing her heart out. Each album also comes complete with two bonus tracks.
