I have the songbooks, I prefer the jazzy stuff to the sugary strings. Where next ?

What's your favourite Ella album ?

Thanks

Most of mine are compilations but this is an excellent jazz based album...

eg the first track is vocal version of Night in Tunisia!

But it's hard to beat the Cole Porter Songbook :D

I'd forgotten about that, I bought this comp of the best of the two studio albums recently it was dirt cheap from Amazon market place and is still only £3 odd (stay well away from any live selections of the two of them, I bought one which was absolutely dire)...

There is a nice duet that she did with Oscar Peterson. I think "Ella meets Oscar" or something like that.

Ella and Louis well worth seeking out.
Thanks, I've got that one.

I've ordered the sacds of Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie and Let No Man Write My Epitaph which is out in a couple of weeks. Hopefully be here for Xmas.
