Ella Fitzgerald - Ella At The Hollywood Bowl
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Ella Fitzgerald's "Songbook" records - with her peerless renditions of the best songs of iconic composers from Irving Berlin to Rogers & Hart to Cole Porter to George & Ira Gershwin - are the cornerstone of the Verve Records catalog and the standard for jazz vocal recordings.
Despite their tremendous appeal, Ella never released a live version of these Songbooks. This record, discovered in the private collection of Norman Granz, is the first time a live Songbook has been released from the First Lady of Song.
This album is a first in a number of other respects, as well: although she performed regularly at the Bowl, this is the first full-length concert by Ella from this iconic venue to be released. Furthermore, it documents the only time Ella worked in concert with Paul Weston, the gifted arranger-conductor of her Irving Berlin Songbook album.
