Born into poverty in the town of Newport News, Virginia (1917) - Ella Fitzgerald (IMO) ranks right up there as being one of the greatest, female, jazz vocalists of all time.
A multiple music-award winner - Ella's career as a singer began in 1935 when she was just 17. Her career spanned for 50 years.
This top-notch "Ballads" CD contains 16 tracks in all which were recorded by Ella (along with accompanying musicians) in the years from 1956-1964.
Many of these tunes were penned by some of the most notable songwriters of the day, such as - Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, and George & Ira Gershwin.
Two of my favourite tracks are - "Laura" and " Oh, Lady Be Good!".
*Note* - In 1996 - Ella Fitzgerald (79 at the time) died due to extremely poor health.
