5.0 out of 5 stars Another "must have" from "The First Lady"! June 21, 1999
Format:Audio CD
The Irving Berlin Songbook is in a word, SUPERB. I first heard this album over 20 years ago at my Grandmother's house in Michigan; I had been thumbing through her record collection and happened across this album. Up until that time I had only a glancing familiarity of her work, "A-Tisket A-Tasket" notwithstanding.
However, upon hearing "How Deep Is The Ocean?", I was gone, sunk, hooked, you name it! Twenty years later and that one song has the power to bring me to tears because of it's sheer beauty. I'm a sucker for strings simply because they can transform a song into something lush and rich and wonderful, which is exactly what the strings in "How Deep" do; from the dramatic opening strains to the bridge in the middle (along with the brief sax solo)which lifts you straight to the clouds, to the absolute gorgeous and tender finish, this song never fails in taking my breath away. "Now It Can Be Told", another stunner included on this album, frames Ella's superb vocals like a musical photograph.
For pure scat pleasure, "Blue Skies" simply ROCKS! That tune is simply awesome, defintely a song to listen to with the top down and the wind in your hair! "You Can Have Him" is another gem among the stand-outs on this album; underneath the light, breezy playful tempo, Ella proclaims to "The Other Woman" that "he's not the man for me" despite the fact that she wants to cook, clean, kiss and cuddle him, "rub his forhead with a gentle touch/mornings after when he's had too much" and have a score of children with the man! Let's face it, we know that she's absoltely loopy for the guy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magistral trabajo de la diva Ella !!! April 24, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Este trabajo de la mítica cantante afroamericana Ella Fitzgerald es realmente exclente. Aqui nos deleita con 16 canciones del gran compositor norteamericano Irving Berling, todos ellos de una belleza extraordinarias. Ella Fitzgerald nos encanta con su magnífica voz y sus profundas interpretaciones acompañadas excelentemente por la orquesta de Paul Weston. Esta grabación hecha en 1958 nos da el ejemplo, una vez más, de la magnífica calidad de los músicos y cantantes de esa época. Es extraordinaria la afinación de esta cantante, que en esa época cantaban sin edición prácticamente. Para disfrutar.
