To hear Louis' voice makes us smile and is such a sublime contrast to that perfect vocal instrument that Ella uses to soothe and thrill our ears.

I like listening to a CD where I don't have to skip and this CD avoids skipping.

Format: Audio CD
This is probably my favorite jazz/pop vocal album of all time. My best friend introduced me to it years ago, and I am overjoyed to see it properly reissued, complete, at long last. There's something magical in the way that Ella's elegance and Armstrong's robust humor combine to produce music of such overwhelming warmth and sophistication. When you hear Armstrong sing the deliciously quaint and suggestive verse to "Let's Do It," all about the little bluebell in the dell, and the little blue bird ("boid" in New Orleanian), and the little blue clerk, marrying Cole Porter's arch '30s wit to his own much deeper knowledge of human need, you will be won over forever. Likewise Fitzgerald's treatment of even the most mundane lyric -- as in "Don't Be That Way" -- makes it seem like pure gold, AND the most natural advice in the world.
Which is not to say that the material is inferior! These are well-chosen standards, lovely tunes that everyone ought to be humming. It's just that these two great singing musicians transform them into something really special. Get this! Get two copies, and give one to *your* best friend. You'll both be happy every time you listen.

Besides being the world's BEST jazz pianist (Oscar), jazz songstress (Ella), and trumpet player (Louis), they loved each other's talents and knew how to have fun which rubs off on us listeners. Louis originated scat singing and Ella perfected it. To hear Louis' voice makes us smile and is such a sublime contrast to that perfect vocal instrument that Ella uses to soothe and thrill our ears. The recording is a masterpiece that entertains as few will ever do.

The only time Louis and Ella really shake it loose here, on "Stompin at the Savoy" -- which everybody feels forever compelled to remind you was a lucky run of the tape during some fooling around that Verve decided was so good they just had to include it on the release -- there's a moment when Armstrong riffs something like "one more time, Ella, Norman Granz must be looking at Lionel Hampton." I could visualize, when he sings this, Armstrong looking up into the recording booth and a delirious Granz gesturing wildly with his hands for everybody to play on -- Louie, baby, this is the magic! Whatever, even the liner notes writer on this "Dig" release acknowledges this set isn't exactly wheelhouse stuff for Louis and Ella. It's more white tablecloth Louis and Ella for the cocktails set. No burly blues, jazz and Dixieland here. Kind of jarring, hearing Louis sing the Cole Porter "Let's Do It," but, don't get me wrong for a moment, he's definitely making it happen. It's not hard to imagine Ella laying into "Ill Wind" or scatting her head off on "Stompin at the Savoy," but some of the other stuff walks a finer line, and this set -- as Disc 2 almost - almost - begins to -- could have had an uneasy, forced feeling. These, however, are the two oldest and best pros in the business. Ella and Louis never sound like they're working to find the center of the song; they've got the whole program under control. With the "tasteful", yet completely commanding swing of the Oscar Peterson Trio to carry them along, they find an easy sweet spot and appear to relax. But relax doesn't give them due credit for the complete mastery these two have of their art. They are both among the few very greatest and most distinctive singers in the long history of American popular song.Read more ›

Ella & Louis Again is classic jazz at it's best, two legends in the studio jamming with Oscar Peterson's jazz combo, it doesn't get any better then this.
Here are ten essential jazz vocal albums some are avaiable on CD(domestic, English or Japanese imports) some you'll have to hunt 2nd hand stores for, but all are worth looking for
1 Ella & Louis Again by Ella Fitgerld &Louis Armstrong, 2 Connee Boswell & The Memphis 5 In Hi-Fi 3 Mel Torme Sings Fred Astaire 4 Anita O'Day-At Mr. Kelly's 5 Bing Crosby-Bing With a Beat 6 Sarah Vaughan & Her Trio-Swingin' Easy 7 John Coltrane+Johnny Hartman 7 Anita O'Day-Live In person 8 Lee Wiley-The Gershwin & Cole Porter Songbooks 9 Helen Humes-Swingin' With Humes 10 Frank Sinatra-Live In Australia
There are hundreds more, but this will get you inroduced to just a couple of the main jazz vocalists and albums (try to stay away from compilation of artists if you can get origional reissues unless the music is before the 50's and all there are are compilations)

Format: Audio CD
This is definetely one of my top five favourite albums ever. I listen to it regularly and I never get tired of it. This occasionally amazes me. After all, this music is simple enough: standard jazz tunes, two voices, and a very discreet accompaniment by only a piano (and Peterson, who is so incredibly virtuoso when playing alone, is excellent at understating and remaining in background on this album), drums, a bass and sometimes Louis' trumpet. But the result is magical. Ella and Louis are perfect together, although their voices and styles couldn't be more different. Another reviewer described the blend as "gravel and molasses", and I couldn't put it better. Ella's sweet, pure voice and Louis' rough growl create a contrast that is just ravishing to the ear. And each song is filled with that discreet, subtle, intoxicating swing (kudos to the musicians as well as the singers, for that). Music like this can just brighten your day.
