Synopsis

Amazon.com
Jazz-cabaret chanteuse Ann Hampton Callaway pays tribute to the First Lady of Song in To Ella with Love, a 1996 recording rereleased in 1999 as a companion to her small-ensemble album, Easy Living. Here Callaway is supported by a full band anchored by pianist Cyrus Chestnut, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Lewis Nash, while Wynton Marsalis sits in for two numbers. "How High the Moon" begins in a loping gait before catching fire and including the inevitable scat solo. While Callaway doesn't include any of her own songs among this collection of standards, it's one of her best albums. --David Horiuchi

"Ella would be thrilled to hear this one! This is a tribute to both artists and an album that will get lots of play at my house. Callaway's range, clarity and original delivery make her one of our most talented musicians and while listening to her is an exceptional treat watching her perform is even more amazing. I can't get enough of her."
