By Peter Durward Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on October 5, 2004
Format: Audio CD
Ella's career was slow to get going but she long ago became a legend. This compilation of some of her best music contains some of her finest music from her peak years. Most of Ella's songs were not originals, but were covers of classics written by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and other famous songwriters of their generation.

The set includes two classic duets with Louis Armstrong (Summertime, They can't take that away from me) and many other songs that Ella is remembered for, among them being Let's fall in love, Every time we say goodbye and Manhattan.

I only have eyes for you, originally written in the thirties, later became a rock'n'roll hit for the Flamingos in the fifties and a pop hit for Art Garfunkel in the seventies. Georgia on my mind, written by Hoagy Carmichael in the thirties, became much more popular when Ray Charles revived it in the sixties. Blue moon was revived by Elvis Presley in the fifties and again by the Marcels in the sixties.

Other famous songs include A fine romance, The very thought of you, Cheek to cheek, Lady is a tramp, I get a kick out of you, I love Paris, But not for me, Blue skies, Someone to watch over me, I've got you under my skin, Stormy weather, Bewitched, Night and day, Let's face the music and dance and many others.

Ella's versions of all these songs are brilliant. I'm sure that the compilers of this set must have had a difficult job deciding what to leave out but all the essentials are here. As an introduction to Ella's music, this is outstanding.

Please be aware that there are two versions of this CD--both contain different songs. One CD has a blue-purple color and a cartoonish image of Ella on the cover. There is also a version with a picture of the real Ella on it.

Both of these CDs have the same title, but different track listings. For example, the "Gold" with the real Ella on it does not include songs such as "Manhattan" or "Bewitched". I was really disappointed when I received my CD and it didn't have these songs on it, because they were the main reason I bought it.

The songs are still 5-star material, though...just not what the product description states, nor other reviews on this page.

The review on it mentions songs that are not on this album. In addition the songs listed are not on the album. I ended up returning it because it wasn't as described.

Ella Fitzgerald is remembered as one of America's finest jazz vocalists and one of the most honored with American National Medal of Arts and inducted into the Kennedy Center Honors. Besides that, she is considered the first lady and maybe Queen of Jazz. There will always be other jazz singers but Ella is the first and one of the best. This two disc compilation is an extraordinary collection of the finest of her works and some others as well. Her voice is smooth as silk and it doesn't come any better than this compilation.
