First Lady of Song [Golden Stars]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tom Schulte
Ella Fitzgerald is often cornered by history into the narrow confines of pop music and jazz vocals. Actually, she was a queen of song at a time when blues, jazz, and R&B intersected in an advanced popular art form. Her music is celebrated in this three-CD set. It was "A-Tisket, A-Tasket" that brought Fitzgerald to a wide audience in 1998. That is on First Lady of Song, along with its follow-up "I Found My Yellow Basket" and other such pop-jazz songs in a big band setting. The collection also includes examples of here inimitable scat singing.
