Release Date:01/13/2015;Notes:EU-only 180gm vinyl LP pressing with deluxe inner sleeve and digital download. Louis Armstrong's career began nearly 15 years before Ella Fitzgerald's. in fact, Louis was one of Ella's first musical idols and even at the early stages of her career she would perform a song in her program imitating Louis' voice. This routine is her humorous way of paying homage to Louis. By the early forties, Ella was already a well-known star. Although both Ella and Louis had probably met and performed together previously, they wouldn't be heard on record together until January 18, 1946, when they waxed a single 78 rpm disc coupling "The Frim Fram Sauce" with "You Won't Be Satisfied". Although they scored a hit on the latter track, they wouldn't return to the studio together until four years later. On August 25, 1950 they recorded "Can Anyone Explain" and a second hit, "Dream a Little Dream on Me". Another studio session was made that year, and four titles were cut: "Necessary Evil", "Oops", "Would You Like to Take a Walk" and "Who Walks in (When I Walk out)". This time the results were worse than on the previous attempts, mainly because of the low quality of the songs. This would dramatically change on the three LPs they made between 1956 and 1957, which complete their collective discography. Those memorable albums were ELLA & LOUIS (presented here), it's sequel ELLA & LOUIS AGAIN and the selection of tunes from George Gershwin's folk opera PORGY & BESS.;Track List:1.
