Thank you BBC for making these available - from a prime time in Ella's great
career. Love this! A "must-have" for Jazz fans and popular music fans
and Ella fans. It's almost like a miracle that this music has been made
available after such a long time.
Ah, modern technology.
Thanks so much - this is truly wonderful

I never regretted getting this CD, I just wished the sound quality was much better. Ella can sing a song hundreds different ways live, they are all worth listening.

I bought this cd so my 20-something daughter could start to listen to the 'jazz greats.' And on that note I am pleased with it. But I wanted to address someone else's concerns about the quality of production. Their review almost kept me from buying this cd, but I'm glad I did. It is not nearly as bad as they led me to believe. If you require perfect audio, then maybe you won't be able to get past the 'age' of the sound, but I did not find it to be terrible at all. Considering the quality of all recordings back then, they went with the original sound, and it's all about Ella.
