The very fact that Americas biggest jazz label called one of their albums quite simply Ella and Louis indicates that we are talking about something very special here And surely enough has been said Satchmo and the grande dame of jazz certainly need no further introduction In the 50s just the mere mention of their forenames was enough to light up the eyes of jazz fans A glance at the tracklist reveals that tranquility rules the day wild stomps and improvised scats will neither be sought nor missed Of prime importance to the jazz ballad is a feeling of letting oneself drift in the inspiration which gushes forth from the minds of genial American songwriters This is no contest for the artists all pursue a common goal with extreme sensitiveness The background combo made up of firstclass musicians and led by Oscar Peterson performs with great concentration and almost obtrusive unobtrusiveness VERVEs highly successful producer Norman Granz decided quite deliberately to make the recording in the studio instead of at a live session And success has verified his judgement for such vocal jazz knows only gentle tones but the result is all the more intensive for that

Recording August 1956 at Capitol Studios Los Angeles by Val Valentin / Production Norman Granz
