Ella Fitzgerald . Joe Pass : Take Love Easy


AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
Ella Fitzgerald and guitarist Joe Pass teamed up in a set of duets for this album which has been reissued on CD. Because the emphasis is on ballads and not all of the songs are that well suited to Fitzgerald’s musical personality (particularly “Lush Life” and “I Want to Talk About You”), this set is only a mixed success. Much more successful are “Don’t Be That Way” and “A Foggy Day” but this is not one of the more essential Ella Fitzgerald records.
