Ella Fitzgerald
Ella Swings Lightly

  (Item #: fitzgella_swings_1801) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side one and a side two that's right up there with it, this copy has a lot going for it
  • Lovely All Tube sound from 1958, with a huge, rich orchestra conducted by our man, Marty Paich
  • Grammy Award for Best Improvised Jazz Solo - these were the days when Ella was on top of the world
  • "The bright, sunny optimism of Fitzgerald’s style comes through in several tracks, including 'If I Were a Bell' (which also includes several remarkable variations on the melody), and 'Teardrops From My Eyes' (which alternates between rock and jazz beats—not a big leap back then!)"

Our Price: $149.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this copy was one of the best we played in our recent shootout

  • "...the timelessness of the melodies, coupled with the assembled backing aggregate, make Chet Baker Plays the Best of Lerner and Loewe (1959) a memorable concept album."
