Ella & Cole

I'm a regular visitor of the weblog of Ceasar Tjalbo (check it out!). I really love some of the stuff he puts up there. At the moment he is busy posting an extensive collection of Billie Holiday recordings.
When he announced these postings I accidentally got in a discussion with some other visitors about who was better: Billie Holiday or Ella Fitzgerald. Personally I favor Ella, but apparently some people think otherwise. I then decided I should put some great Ella recordings up here in order to let people make up there own mind. So here we are....
This album was recorded in 1956 (don't worry, it is digitally remastered). The album was such a success that there was going to be a second volume in 1958 and some other albums focusing on particular composers. This album doesn't only shows Ella at her best but will also leave you impressed by the Cole Porter compositions.

The password = "scrooge".
Please delete these files within 24 hours. If you like this music buy the album and support the industry
