5.0 out of 5 stars She's not a household word.....too bad! October 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a classic tribute to a classic artist and Ella would be proud and pleased to hear her wonderful songs given the incredibly apropos and swinging treatment with which Dee Dee has rendered them. This tribute joins Her tributes to Ellington and Horace Silver in my collection. I believe it unfortunate that Dee Dee has not gained the recognition she so richly deserves given that she has the voice and musical chops that have her in my first tier of jazz vocalists. Yes, I think she belongs with the best and I doubt that Sarah, Nancy, Carmen, Billie or even Ella would deny her although, and this is the rub, her body of work cannot compare in volume. Diane Krall, no disrespect intended, is perhaps a great white hope in the field and as a result garners far more attention and regard than her voice and artistry, could they stand on their own, merit. Krall is a good singer, Dee Dee smokes. Comparisons are odious and I apologize for them, but in response to Cocopazzo: take the LA tinsel out of your ears because you can't possibly be listening to the same music I am. Ella will not spin in her grave, not that a tribute by any artist of another implies an equality or superiority of talent but certainly an appreciation of it, she may, however, tap her toes and scat along with Dee Dee.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Deal July 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I'm about half way through listening to this recording for the first time, and couldn't wait to recommend it. I listen to a lot of Jazz, but have made no recommendations, until now. You should believe the other positive reviews you find here. This is an amazing CD, one I know I will enjoy over and over. You don't need to think of Ella, or make comparisons with anyone. Dee Dee's own work, talent & passion for this project can be heard and felt. The recording is clean, forward and warm, with a perfect balance of all involved. Great instrument performances and arrangements. Well worth every penny. Can't wait to turn my friends on to this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ULTIMATE May 24, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the ULTIMATE jazz album. The vocals are incredible. The arrangements are magnificent. The musicians are phenomenal. This is the opus, the pinnacle of jazz albums. It is no wonder it won 2 Grammy's...at least the awards people got this right. A MUST HAVE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dear Ella - A Milestone Recording January 6, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Dear Ella" clearly shows that Dee Dee Bridgewater is one of the most talented vocalist/musicians of Jazz - whatever era. Her fresh renditions of classic Ella tunes pay homage while bearing Dee Dee's signature vocal acrobatics, sweet melancholy and impressive style.
