The Queen of Jazz and ‘Satchmo’ had duetted earlier in their illustrious careers. But it wasn’t until Producer Norman Granz came up with the idea of putting them together for specific albums that their true chemistry was revealed. The Platinum Collection features two iconic albums Ella & Louis and Ella & Louis Again. Both albums feature Jazz At The Phil regulars Oscar Peterson (Piano), Herb Ellis (Guitar), Ray Brown (Bass) and Buddy Rich (Drums) with the exception of Louis Bellson replacing Buddy Rich on Ella & Louis Again recording. Now it’s time for Fitzgerald to ‘take it Ella – swing it’….
