Illustrator: Sophie Toulouse.
With a wide vocal range and a light, fluid way of phrasing, not to mention a real flair for scat singing, one that made her the equivalent of a jazz horn player moving in and around and between the notes of a melody, Ella Fitzgerald was truly one of a kind, dubbed the First Lady of Song, the very voice of jazz in her lifetime and, quite likely, for all time. She started out as a swing singer, had no problem with bebop, bossa nova, or calypso, or anything else for that matter, and wasn't hesitant to bring her skills to more modern material in the 1960s and 1970s. Along the way she helped establish the long-playing album as its own art form as she worked her way through the Great American Songbook, composer by composer, in a landmark series of albums in the 1950s, and her versions of those classic songs often ended up the definitive ones. She spent her last years as she spent her career, as a revered and iconic American treasure. Amazingly, this lovingly assembled ten-disc box set is the first time a career-long survey of her work has been put together in a retrospective that includes her first sides with Chick Webb all the way through her Decca and Verve years, with a couple of previously unreleased live concerts added in for good measure. It all sorts out to a wonderful release, with a beautifully bound hardcover book included that tells Fitzgerald's story and adds detailed track notes, culminating in a lovely and telling testament to one of America's greatest singers. ~ Steve Leggett
