Part of Fitzgerald's series of Songbooks, it is the only one where the composer is also featured as a performer. This was the first time that Fitzgerald had recorded with Ellington and is also the entry in the Songbook series that gives her by far most often the opportunity to exhibit her famous scat singing.

Duke Ellington

Duke Ellington

Duke Ellington was born April 29, 1899, in Washington, D.C. A major figure in the history of jazz music, his career spanned more than half a century, during which time he composed thousands of songs for the stage, screen and contemporary songbook. He created one of the most distinctive ensemble sounds in Western music and continued to play what he called "American Music" until shortly before his death in 1974.

Ella Fitzgerald

Ella Fitzgerald

Dubbed ‘The First Lady of Song,' Ella Fitzgerald was the most popular female jazz singer in the United States for more than half a century. In her lifetime, she won 13 Grammy awards and sold over 40 million albums.
profile & recordings >>

These recordings are packed with some of the key figures in 20th century jazz. As if Ella and Duke weren't enough, Ellington's arranger/composer Billy Strayhorn, guest musicians Dizzy Gillespie and Oscar Peterson, and brilliant record producer Norman Granz all have a hand in the proceedings. And what better backing band could one want than Duke's orchestra?

Jimmy Hamilton, Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves, Harry Carney, and Sam Woodyard, among others -- contribute fine performances throughout. Duke's spectacular catalog dazzles, and his sprightly, lush textures are transfigured under Fitzgerald's warm-timbred voice and elegant, precise delivery. Included here are classics like 'Rockin' in Rhythm', 'Caravan', 'Satin Doll', 'Sophisticated Lady', 'Prelude to a Kiss', and 'It Don't Mean a Thing...', each tune as familiar as it is delightful to hear in this new context.
