This extensive collection was recorded with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, marking the first time that Ella and Riddle had worked together. This album is the largest single recording project that Ella worked on, and it is considered to be one of the most ambitious achievements in Western popular music.

Though Fitzgerald was 20 years old at the time George Gershwin died in 1937, Ira Gershwin was still alive to see this project completed, and helped contribute lyrics and support to some songs on the album which had never been recorded before. It was this project that led Ira Gershwin to say that he had 'never known how good our songs were until I heard Ella sing them'.

Fitzgerald's recording of 'But Not for Me' won her the 1960 GRAMMY Award for 'Best Female Vocal Performance'.
