One of Ella Fitzgerald's great vocal assets was that throughout her long career, her voice retained an essentially innocent quality. It was in this vocal characteristic, combined with the singer's consummate musical mastery, that Norman Granz heard the ideal vehicle for a selection of readings from the Great American Songbook. Ella's coolly detached approach to interpreting lyrics is nowhere better displayed than on this album of songs by one of the most sophisticated American songwriters, Cole Porter, in which she delivers both his refined dance songs, such as "Begin the Beguine," and his popular classics, such as the regretful "It Was Just One of Those Things," with equal conviction and technical skill.
