OUTSTANDING 4 CD collection of Ella recorded in 1961/1962 (she was in her mid 40's age-wise) performing fabulous versions of many famous/familiar tunes - what a great listening experience to hear her live in early 60's!

Ella is singing her heart out in this nightclub appearance. You can hear the requests from the audience. This is just like being with Ella Fitzgerald for the Twelve Nights she appeared in Hollywood. Ella is in fine voice and having the time of her life. She really enjoyed a small audience.

Superb! This four-disc collection covers material from all phases of Ella Fitzgerald's career. The songs were recorded live during two bookings at the Crescendo in Hollywood, in 1961 and 1963, when Ella's lush and pliable voice was at its height. The performances are incredibly free and extremely imaginative musically. One doesn't listen to Ella particularly for the lyrics, but for how she uses her voice, and in these recordings her voice was in fantastic shape. She's a trumpet, a saxophone, and her legendary scat singing is on full display (listen to Perdido on disc 1). Thank you Norman Granz!
