Overview

These aren't bootlegs; the CDs were mastered from the original tapes, which were produced by Norman Granz, Verve's founder and Fitzgerald’s longtime manager.... They capture the singer in her peak years, and at top form: more relaxed, swinging and adventurous, across a wider span of rhythms and moods, than on the dozens of other albums that hit the bins in her lifetime.... The woman exuded joy in nearly every note she sang. Yet the level on these sessions soared higher and plumbed deeper.

Editorial Reviews

All About Jazz - Ken Dryden
The listener feels like they are at a front-and-center table, taking in Fitzgerald's effortless swing and energy, with her matchless scatting plus lots of fun ad-libs and song quotes, along with recognizing friends and fellow celebrities in the audience.... Clearly music for the ages.
Audiophile Audition - Daniel Krow
A marvelous collection of songs from one of jazz's most joyous singers.... Twelve Nights in Hollywood captures both the infectious charm and technical brilliance of Ella Fitzgerald, as well as the rapport she had with her public. It's rare to hear a live recording that so perfectly records a performer's joy in performing.
