Ella Fitzgerald – Gold : All Her Greatest Hits (2 CD Set)

SKU 0654842 (U) Categories , , ,


Ella Fitzgerald was one of the great jazz and sophisticated pop singers of the middle decades of the 20th century, her music transcending the genres as she marked herself down as one of the finest interpreters of the Great American Songbook, working with big bands, small groups and lush orchestras down the years. This great-value 39-track 2-CD set is a marvellous showcase, with songs by Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Rodgers & Hart, Irving Berlin and a host of others, including her 1960 UK Top 20 hit with Kurt Weill’s “Mack The Knife”. It’s pure class.
