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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rhythm + Ella = Perfection May 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
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".

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't stop playing this CD! November 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ella sings with pure joy August 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
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.
