After cutting a few sides for Decca in the late forties and early fifties, all of them backed by big bands, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong were summoned by producer Norman Granz in 1956-67 to make three albums that would become legendary jazz classics
This 5-LP set compiles the three complete albums,
Ella & Louis (Verve MGV4003),
Ella & Louis Again (Verve MGV4006-2 [2-LP Set]),
Porgy & Bess (Verve MGV-4011-2 [2-LP Set])
Plus, added as a bonus to the Porgy & Bess album, the two duets Ella and
Louis performed during a 1956 Hollywood Bowl concert which marked their earliest
collaborative recordings for Granz.
Also contained here are their eight 1946-51 Decca
studio master takes on an exclusive 10” coloured vinyl album.
This lavish box set is completed by the 12 PAGE LP SIZED BOOKLET to accompany the music
