Album of the Month

February 2017


Verve Records
Produced by Norman Granz

Let's travel back in time to the Capitol Records recording
studio in Hollywood, the year is 1956.

Ella and Louis are singing, Oscar Peterson is at the piano.
Buddy Rich is on drums.
Yes, that is Herb Ellis on guitar and Ray Brown on bass.

Do you love listening to Ella scat? Then you’ll be in heaven.
Love Duke’s standards? They are here, too.

Buddy Bregman, whom we lost last month, was
arranging and conducting.

Photographer Phil Stern was hanging around, taking pictures.
Actually, we have this record, so we're fine. Whew.

Buy a copy for yourself and then grab one more for each and every music lover in your life.

Did you know that Ella assigned all the royalties from her recordings to benefit the charitable foundation that bears her name? So remember that when you legally purchase an Ella Fitzgerald CD or MP3, you are helping families and children in need!
