A tasty sampler of Ella Fitzgerald's Verve recordings with the Duke Ellington orchestra, this disc draws from three albums: the 1957 classic, Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Duke Ellington Song Book; Ella at Duke's Place from 1965; and the live Ella & Duke at the Cote d'Azur from the 1966 International Festival of Jazz. The music is fantastic, leaving the listener yearning to hear the complete original recordings.
