Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 – June 15, 1996) was an American jazz singer often referred to as the First Lady of Song, Queen of Jazz and Lady Ella. She was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing and intonation, and a "horn-like" improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing. After tumultuous teenage years, Fitzgerald found stability in musical success with the Chick Webb Orchestra, performing across the country, but most often associated with the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem.
In 2001, it was awarded a Grammy Hall of Fame Award, a special achievement prize established in 1973 to honor recordings that are at least twenty-five years old, and that have "qualitative or historical significance

Ella and Louis is an inspired collaboration, masterminded by producer Norman Granz. Both artists were riding high at this stage in their careers, and Granz assembled a stellar quartet of Oscar Peterson (piano), Buddy Rich (drums), Herb Ellis (guitar) and Ray Brown (bass). Equally inspired was the choice of material, with the gruffness of Armstrong's voice blending like magic with Fitzgerald's stunningly silky delivery
Ella and Louis Again, recorded the following year is even more of the same: a double album that brought the same team together (with Louis Bellson replacing Rich). However, only about two-thirds of the original record is here, since portions of it were recorded as solo artists. Still, Granz was canny enough to know not to monkey with a good thing, and in some ways this collection of songs is even better than the first, with absolutely terrific versions of "Don't Be That Way" and "Stompin' at the Savoy.

Ella + Louis Jazz’s Greatest Duets? Published on. August 16, 2016. The evening before they recorded their duets album Louis and Miss Fitzgerald were appearing in an all-star concert also starring Art Tatum and Oscar Peterson that was recorded for an album entitled Live At The Hollywood Bowl (1956). The following day the two singers, along with the Oscar Peterson Trio (Herb Ellis (guitar), Ray Brown (bass), Buddy Rich (drums), were in a Los Angeles studio to record this gem of an album. With no time for rehearsals the songs were all set in Louis’s key to make it easier, but this in no way inhibits the performance of either singer.
