O’s Notes: This recording captures Ella live At The Hollywood Bowl, August 1958. She is in her prime swinging, singing and scatting with the music of Irvin Berlin, mostly romance. The band is a large ensemble with crisp accents conducted by Paul Westin. Fitzgerald is incredibly melodic, shining on “How Deep Is The Ocean”, “Cheek To Cheek” and “The Song Is Ended”, just a few of fifteen classics.
