Description

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Another typically wonderful LP of Ella Fitzgerald in her prime, Fitzgerald is joined by pianist Lou Levy, guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Joe Mondragon, and drummer Stan Levey. Fitzgerald is in fine form on such numbers as “A Night in Tunisia,” an emotional “You’re My Thrill,” “Jersey Bounce,” and “Clap Hands! Here Comes Charlie.” Although not reaching the heights of her live performances, this is an excellent (and somewhat underrated) set.
