Ella Fitzgerald's singing talents were simply supreme. Every one of her contemporaries looked up to her as the standard to be judged by. There are dozens of quotes from everyone including Crosby, Sinatra and virtually all the major band leaders extolling her virtues. Ella Fitzgerald was undoubtedly one of the greatest jazz and pop singers and interpreters of the twentieth century. Listeners can dance to her work, relax to it, laugh with it, cry with it, and everything in between as she can satisfy every mood. This album gathers some of her very best recordings, and could serve as a starting point for some deeper delving into her fine catalogue of songs.
