This two-CD set features some of the superlative jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald's most notable contributions to American popular music--her recordings of the Great American Songbook. With the bulk of the material here written by Rodgers and Hart, Fitzgerald's voice, with its uncanny bell-like timbre, is the perfect vehicle for conveying the sheer beauty of classics such as "Spring Is Here," "It Never Entered My Mind," and "I Could Write a Book." Of the other songs, George Gershwin's "Nice Work If You Can Get It," displaying the composer's affinity with jazz, and the corresponding delight Fitzgerald takes in performing it, make an unbeatable combination.
