Ella And Basie! – Ella Fitzgerald With Count Basie And His Orchestra


Surprisingly enough this 1963 LP was the first time (other than a couple songs) that Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie recorded together. (The match-up was so logical that it would be repeated many times over the next 20 years.) Fitzgerald sounds fine and, even if Quincy Jones' arrangements did not give the Basie musicians as much space for solos — although two songs do feature a bit of trumpeter Joe Newman, trombonist Urbie Green and Frank Foster on tenor — this is an enjoyable effort. High points include “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Them There Eyes” and “Shiny Stockings.”
