To Ella with Love

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Ann Hampton Callaway has a strong reputation as one of the top cabaret singers of the 1990's but, unlike most others in that idiom, she is also a talented jazz singer. Callaway, who has a beautiful voice with a wide range, always swings while giving strong emphasis to the lyrics she is interpreting. Her ambitious and successful Ella Fitzgerald tribute uses on some songs a string section recorded in Estonia, an American big band, a trio consisting of pianist Cyrus Chestnut, bassist Christian McBride and drummer Lewis Nash and On "Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me" and "How High The Moon" guest trumpeter Wynton Marsalis.

Although Callaway does not sound that much like Ella, she pays tribute to the First Lady of Song through her repertoire 14 superior standards, phrasing and joyful swing. Highpoints include "A Fine Romance," "But Not For Me," an emotional "Little Girl Blue" and a stomping rendition of "Lady Be Good." This is a highly recommended elease that both serves as a memorial to Ella and as a strong introduction for jazz listeners to Ann Hampton Callaway.

    To Ella With Love -

    In 1995 I heard this CD at a local record store. As a huge fan of Ella Fitzgerald, I just had to have this CD. This was my first introduction to the music of this very talented lady. I highly recommend this CD. I think its one of the best AHC has ever done. I have all of her CD's.
