Cole Porter & Irving Berlin Songbook Classics

Beloved standards with the incomparable Ella

Ella herself acknowledged that Cole Porter album was a ‘turning point in my life.  Doing those song books helped me get into spots I’d never been able to play before.’  Porter simply  commented ‘My, what marvelous diction that girl has.’  Ira Gershwin was more appreciative remarking ‘I never knew how good our songs were until I heard Ella Fitzgerald sing them’ whilst Richard Rodgers said ‘Whatever she does to my songs, she always makes them sound better.’
