43-year-old Ella rolls through her typical routine in feisty fashion on this 1960 recording, which documents the opening show of her European tour. There's the Satchmo impersonation (a joyous 'Mack the Knife'), the lengthy scat showcase ('How High the Moon'), and a bevy of Gershwin and Porter tunes. Supported by pianist Paul Smith's quartet, Ella's voice sounds earthier than usual and her phrasing is as appealing as ever. She's tender on 'Misty' and sultry on 'Too Darn Hot.' On 180 gram vinyl.

is absolutely incredibly terrific. While Miss Fitzgerald was singing "Mack the Knife", she forgot the lyrics...didn't miss a beat and made up new ones - that scanned perfectly. This is one of Ella's very best albums (yes, I know it's a cd not vinyl) and it should be in every music lover's collection.
