Ella Fitzgerald had the ability to personalise some of the most recognisable material from the foremost songwriters in American popular music history. In this instance, the combination of Cole Porter's words and Fitzgerald's interpretation of them created one of the most sought after sessions in vocal history. The album was embraced by jazz and pop fans alike, transcending boundaries often associated with those genres. The success of these early Porter sessions brought about numerous interpretations of other Song Books throughout the next several years including those of Duke Ellington and Johnny Mercer.

'Cole Porter's jaunty melodies superbly showcase Ella's vocal prowess, her faultless intonation, and the devotion she gives to each note. Ella's impeccable diction works to highlight the whimsical innuendo and wordplay in Cole Porter's work. She's having a damn good time with this material and it translates beautifully on record.' Keita Tarlinton
