Ella Fitzgerald – Pure Ella

AMG Review: This outstanding 20-track anthology gives those who didn’t get any of the various Fitzgerald reissues a chance to hear what all the furor was about. Ella Fitzgerald – Pure Ella combines the classy Ella Sings Gershwin album with eight other standards. There’s very sparse support, much of it coming from stately pianist Ellis Larkins, long a favorite of vocalists everywhere for his ability to support without intruding. Otherwise, it’s Fitzgerald’s sublime voice, interpreting and dissecting sentiments, themes, and moods with the touch of a master. She never oversings, rushes, or fails to get everything from a tune. Besides great diction and technique, she’s also simply a marvelous vocalist. There are no straining, unnecessary inflections, grunts or moans, but she also doesn’t coast or hold back during her performances. –by Ron Wynn
