Product Details:

Two of the most influential and popular voices in modern music, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong formed a jazz dream team on Ella and Louis. A once-in-a-lifetime masterpiece, their distinctive vocals meld seamlessly together along with Armstrong’s exceptional trumpet playing and the first-rate accompaniment of pianist Oscar Peterson, guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Ray Brown and drummer Buddy Rich. This recording has become the touchstone and template for jazz vocal duets.
“There isn’t much one can say about an album whose title is Ella And Louis Again. The “again” obviously means they’ve already done one album together and beyond that, what can you say about two people like Ella and Louis? I doubt that there’s anyone today who loves music, who doesn’t know Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. About all that can be pointed out, I suppose, is that we’ve again selected some of the best product of some of the best songwriters of our age. The backing, with the Oscar Peterson Trio and Louis Bellson substituting for Buddy Rich, remains, as in the first album, quiet, discreet, swinging.” – Norman Granz from the original liner notes
