Editorial Reviews

Ella Fitzgerald is the best woman ever to have sung jazz or any other kind of music… She was also one of the most loved, admired, and revered vocalists of the 20th Century.

This 10 CD set is the first to offer a comprehensive look at her six decade long recording career. From her days as Chick Webb's girl singer through her rise as Decca Records' singing star of the 1940s, through the early 1950s. In 1956 Norman Granz formed Verve Records, principally for Ella Fitzgerald, and during her decade long association with the label she defined the long laying record with her albums dedicated to the writers of the Great American Songbook.

In the latter half of the 1960s she recorded for several labels before signing to the Pablo label, the label formed and owned by Norman Granz. Ella's live performances, beginning with her appearances with Jazz at the Philharmonic, and throughout her
long career, made her one of the most popular concert performers; two of the CDs feature Ella's brilliant, often improvised, concert performances.

There never will be another female singer as good as Ella Fitzgerald - the Voice of Jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST ELLA FITZGERALD SET!! December 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD
More stars, please! At least ten - or even A MILLION! This is one of the most beautiful boxed sets of music and music history that i have ever seen. (And I do this kind of stuff for a living). I keep this on my desk just to admire the art work. And the music!! MAGIC. Excellent remastering, Ella sounds fabulous (well, she always did, but the quality on this set is superb). Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ella Fitzgerald the Voice of Jazz January 1, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a present. My brother loves Ella and was intrigued by the extensive liner notes, the breadth of the material covering here career is excellent. If you love Ella you can't do much better because it is pretty all-encompassingfrom beginning to end of her career. If you love Ella, you'll love this. If you like Ella you'll probably find you like her better than you thought. She was one of a kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ten Cds and Hardcover Book--Fantastic! January 7, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of the outstanding items in my collection of 9,000 iTunes, Ella Fitzgerald "The Voice Of Jazz" exceeded my expectations. The fine editing of the book along with ten wonderful Cds is amazing! The many songs from her songbooks such as Gershwin,Porter,Berlin,Ellington and Arlen are worth the price by themselves. In addition she sings with Chick Webb as an 18 year old, and then you hear her voice mature over the years as she is recorded with Basie,Nelson Riddle,Frank DeVol,The Ink Spots,Mills Brothers,etc. The recordings are very high quality and give a complete perspective of the career of this wonderful singer. Highlights are Mack The Knife from Ella In Berlin and the JATP sessions. I am thrilled to own this collection. Ed Shapiro Baltimore
