Released just before Odetta's 68th birthday and dedicated to Ella Fitzgerald, who in retrospect seems to have been quite a large influence on Odetta's singing style, TO ELLA is a complex and fascinating album. Opening with the proud and touching "Black Woman," TO ELLA quickly becomes not only a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald but to women everywhere, in the tradition of some of Odetta's previous anthems of solidarity. "The Fox," "Old Lady Sally," and a heartbreaking reading of "Amazing Grace" complete the picture, but the album's centerpiece is among Odetta's most remarkable accomplishments. A lengthy suite combining stunning rearrangements of the folk standards "Red Clay Country," "Another Man Done Gone," and "No More Cane on the Brazos" with the complementary "Ancestors I: 900 Miles," the overall effect is something like an American version of Shirley and Dolly Collins' equally ambitious suites.
