Ella Fitzgerald: The Reprise Years

Ella Fitzgerald

04 September 2006
Signed to Reprise in 1969, the First Lady of Jazz recorded two remarkable LPs for the labels, covering a number of contemporary songs, along with standards.  Like the reworkings of contemporary pop/rock produced by the visionary Miles Davis, the thrill of these spirited albums rests with Ella's reshaping of familiar material into jazz.  The result timeless, exhilarating music.
