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.
