Ella and Louis is an inspired collaboration, masterminded by producer Norman Granz. Both artists were riding high at this stage in their careers, and Granz assembled a stellar quartet of Oscar Peterson (piano), Buddy Rich (drums), Herb Ellis (guitar) and Ray Brown (bass). Equally inspired was the choice of material, with the gruffness of Armstrong's voice blending like magic with Fitzgerald's stunningly silky delivery. Outstanding are Irving Berlin's "Cheek to Cheek" and "Isn't This a Lovely Day," and everything else works like a dream, with the golden star going to the Gershwin brothers' "They Can't Take That Away from Me." Gentle and sincere, this is deserving of a place in every home. It should come as no surprise that the first collaboration between Ella and Louis was so successful that it was quickly followed by a sequel—and a double album, no less. Even the dumbest A&R man could anticipate the potential magic in the pairing; both singers were at the peak of their popularity in 1957, straying from their jazz roots yet becoming influential and noteworthy interpreters of popular song in the process. Both share a penchant for mirthful clowning and light banter, yet Armstrong’s burnished growl and Ella’s brassy swagger couldn’t be more different and still complement each other superbly. Make no mistake, this is clearly a vocal album—the only solos are Armstrong’s, and they’re few and far between—yet the music choices and delivery are enough to sustain the entire package. Two of their generation’s most vital, most universally venerated voices and musical spirits. Armstrong’s gruff, wavering, guttural growl that cracks and breaks at any moment juxtaposed with Fitzgerald’s graceful, commanding, and wide-ranging style, replete with crystal-clear phrasing and improvisational versatility, was not the most congruous of couplings. However, translated to wax, the duo’s distinctive, contrasting voices complemented each other remarkably well, making for an irresistibly endearing symbiosis in song. even the most casual listen to the wondrous Ella and Louis , above and beyond the pair's other collaborations, is guaranteed to restore your faith in romance and reinforce the enduring power of love. .Zapraszamy
