This is part of the Columbia Jazz Masterpieces series.
The somewhat confusing title of this two-disc live set comes from the fact that although this July 5, 1973, concert took place at New York City's Carnegie Hall, it was sponsored by the Connecticut-based Newport Jazz Festival. This expanded version of what had been a heavily-condensed two-album set on vinyl contains the complete concert, which featured Ella Fitzgerald with a variety of backers, including a version of the Chick Webb Orchestra, the horn-heavy Jazz At Carnegie All-Stars, and most satisfyingly, the Tommy Flanagan Quintet (featuring sterling guitarist Joe Pass). She sounds terrific with all three bands. The eight previously unreleased tracks, including a dazzling scat rendition of "Stompin' at the Savoy," are as magnificent as the more familiar material. This is one of the finest of the many live Fitzgerald sets.
