Even better than volume one. From the gorgeous rendition of I Love Paris to the delightful and fun Don't Fence Me In (which noone else should even bother singing again because Ella has perfected it), this CD has one great song after another, different in moods, yet united by their great arrangements and above all Ella's clear beautiful voice and perfect phrasing. On some of the tracks, especially I've Got You Under My Skin (this version blows Sinatra's away) and Don't Fence Me In, the sound quality is remarkable and it sounds like it was recorded yesterday not in the mid 50s.

The companion to volume 1--you can't have one without the other. Beautiful, lyrical renditions of "I Love Paris" and "So in Love." "It's All Right with Me" is really hot, and "Don't Fence Me In" is a fun finish. Really, they're all favorites. As with volume 1, Buddy Bregman provides the apt orchestra arrangements. I can't honestly say whether I prefer either volume; whenever I listen to one of them, I invariably play the other immediately afterward.

Ella Fitzgerald is one of those rare people that can seldom be found in the world of musicians and vocal singing Jazz Ballads. She is masterful in both Volumes One and Two of the Cole Porter Song Book CD's. If you want to hear an angel on earth sing get both these CD's from Amazon.com, especially if your going to propose marriage to someone during dinner, I recommend that you have this music playing softly in the backround.

Ella just seems to get better and combined with some of the best of Cole Porter this album is unbeatable. The fidelity is pretty good and the arrangements as well. I kinda wish this lady was accompanied by piano only, but the orchestra is a fine one, so OK.

What is there to say? Nobody performs Cole Porter songs like Ella Fitzgerald. The warmth and sophistication of her singing is the perfect companion to Porter's melodies and complex lyrics. This work pairs one of the greatest composers of the 20th century with one of the century's greatest singers! What a superb work of art!

Oddly, I heard Volume 1 when I borrowed it from the library. Fell in love with it, and immediately ordered both volumes. They really are the best of both worlds---one of the greatest song writers of all time combined with one of the greatest singers of all time. I give both Volumes my highest recommendation. You can listen to them without distraction and thoroughly enjoy the experience. Or you can use them as wonderful background music for dinner guests. Or as the backdrop to a seduction scene. Beautiful and versatile music.

Before you put this on, darken the room, silence the distractions, relax......now allow yourself to learn what your older friends have always known. We throw around words like "superstar", "genius", "the greatest" and attribute these terms to mediocre talents who couldn't shine the shoes of this mistress of song. Listen to how she caresses a lyric. Hear how she seems to be singing to you, alone. Notice that you can understand every word without being shouted at. Yes, with this consummate artist, you may encounter nuance for the first time, but you'll be better for the experience. If this is your first time with Ella, it's O.K. she'll be gentle.

I love Ella Fitzgerald, so any of her albums are great, but for some reason this just doesn't have the same magic as Vol. 1 in this series. That is one of my favorite CDs, so I thought this one would be as good. She is always amazing, and the better songs on this album are 'Night and Day', 'So In Love', 'I've Got you Under My Skin', and 'Don't Fence Me In.' The last is probably my favorite. For an Ella fan, it's worth buying. But buy 'Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Cole Porter Songbook Vol. 1' first.
