Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote SOMETHING TO LIVE FOR is a companion 2-CD set to a PBS documentary with the same name which aired on AMERICAN MASTERS in December 1999.

Muze PNote Recorded between March 24, 1937 & July 29, 1966. Includes liner notes by Stuart Nicholson.
Muze PNote Digitally remastered by Kevin Reeves (Universal Music Studios East).
Muze PNote SOMETHING TO LIVE FOR was nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Long Form Music Video.
Muze PNote The First Lady Of Song is widely regarded as the finest female jazz singer of all time, and has exerted an influence over American popular music that is incalculable, though SOMETHING TO LIVE FOR gives it a shot. This 32-track, career-spanning double set serves as a companion to PBS's popular "American Masters" series and offers, for the first time on one collection, a retrospective of Ella Fitzgerald's two most important periods: the Decca years (1935-55), and her Verve years (1956-66).
Muze PNote "A-Tisket, A-Tasket" was the first of many hits she had with the Chick Webb Orchestra, while "How High the Moon" and a live take of "Goody, Goody" show off her remarkable gift for inventive and often humorous scat. There are five selections from her celebrated "Songbook" series, and other rare gems with Ella fronting the orchestras of Duke Ellington, Nelson Riddle and others. With her clear, pristine tone, masterful articulation, and the ability to out-swing anybody any time, Ella Fitzgerald was a singular musical force whose rich legacy continues to reward listeners.

Artist Overview

Through unparalleled ability and judicious choice of repertoire, Ella Fitzgerald became the foremost female interpreter of the 20th-century Great American Popular Song Book. With producer Norman Granz she worked on the "songbook" series, placing on record definitive performances of the work of America's leading songwriters. Fitzgerald had a wide vocal range, but her voice retained a youthful, light vibrancy throughout the greater part of her career, bringing a fresh and appealing quality to most of her material, especially her scat singing. While there are still numerous excellent artists whose work has been strongly influenced by Fitzgerald, the social and artistic conditions that helped to create America's First Lady of Song no longer exist, and it seems highly unlikely that we shall ever see or hear her like again.
