Ella Fitzgerald, The First Lady Of Song, gives us another incredible album to enjoy. Ella's vocal gymnastics proved that she was THE consummate singer--and quite the vocal athlete at that. This CD amply proves it; and the big band style musical arrangements by Bill Doggett enhance Ella's performance on every track.

The CD set begins with "Rough Ridin'." The horns start the melody off strong; and Ella's voice is rich, warm and especially vibrant. Ella swings brightly; she plays with the tempo, scats and adds a few quick key changes to showcase her superb vocal athletics. I love that sax solo in the middle of "Rough Ridin'," too. The percussion enhances the melody as well. "You Can Depend On Me" sports a big band flavor to the musical arrangement; and Ella sings "You Can Depend On Me" without a superfluous note. This great number allows Ella's character to express that she will be there for the man she loves even though he loves someone else. Stunning! "You Can Depend On Me" swings with the very best of them!

"Show Me The Way To Go Out Of This World 'Cause That's Where Everything Is" refers to Ella's desire to go to a world where love, excitement and joy are in abundance at every turn. This relentlessly optimistic number glistens like gold with great lyrics and the use of the horns section complements Ella's vocals to perfection! "Hallelujah, I Love Him So" gets the royal treatment from Ella and the musicians. They take this ballad and make it into a shining joyous ode to love. Ella swings confidently and does a few vocal tricks to enhance her performance. The big band style arrangement really swings hard--but it's beautiful, make no mistake about it. I think you will like "Hallelujah, I Love Him So.

Ms. Fitzgerald never ceases to amaze me with her imense talent. Every time I think I have THE best album she ever made, I get another one and fall for her all over again! On this disc, she covers a wide range of diverse material for one album. From the sorrowful mourning of "I Can't Face the Music" to the outrageous tempo and swing of "Runnin' Wild", Ella proves once again she will always be the versatile "First Lady of Song".

I have this CD shuffled with a bunch of other great jazz vocalists--Julie London, Sarah Vaughn, June Chrisy--and whenever Ella's songs come on, I can't help but stop what I'm doing to listen. Her voice is so crisp, she hits every note so perfectly, but it seems like she's putting no effort into it. This CD in particular is my favorite of hers that I've heard. The big band is rockin' and she adds to their energy to create songs that I can't stop playing (too loud for my neighbors I'm sure). Especially "Rough Riders", "No Moon at All", "Runnin' Wild", and "I'll Always be in Love with You". Enjoy!

By the time Ella Fitzgerald teamed with R&B organist Bill Doggett to produce this 1962 session,she had already re imagined the vocabulary of jazz vocalizing several times over-from her days of crooning popular songs with the Chick Webb Orchestra in the 1930's up through her appropriation of be-bop and her scat singing breakthrough in the 50's. By the early 60's she was at that awkward point where her pioneering days were coming to a close yet she wasn't exactly ready to retire yet. Vocally she was still at the absolute top of her form. And the quality of the output she would make would have to depend on her arranger and the musicians she sang with. On this album she decided to make a full on return to the sound of the big band swing that made her. At the same time, she had already adapted a lot of new vocal ideas into her framework to do it the same way again.

With numbers like "Rough Ridin","Broadway",You Can Depend On Me","Runnin' Wild"....well the first six songs here really Ella is singing over big,brassy,swinging arrangements complimented by Doggett's organ work. The rhythm is equally driving and,of course Ella brings a combination of her wonderfully sustainable crooning and her rangy scat singing right into the spirited accompaniment. "Hallelujah I Love Her So",while done in the same instrumental style,showcases the first stirrings of a possible future for Ella where she brings out the more gospel oriented end of her pipes to interpret a then fairly new Ray Charles composition representing the beginning of the soul music era. When the blues comes in and the tempo gets slower on numbers like "I Can't Face The Music","Laughing On The Outside" and "After Your Gone" Ella's beautifully,elongated crooning cry on the high notes really shows up in a major way.

Ella Fitzgerald, in this beautiful reissue, sings with a great big band that, as you can imagine, is very different from an orchestra. Every element takes a moment for a solo, and the rithm and songs are simply wonderful.
