"It's not that it's a bad CD or anything, it's just not the greatest. The recording dates of the sessions of this CD are probably the most important parts to take notice of: 1983 and 1986. This means that Ms. Fitzgerald was fairly old, and her health was not the greatest at this time, and it shows a little bit on the record. On a few songs she's just out of tune, and sounds old.Mr. Pass' playing is up to its usual snuff, of course; just simple, easy-sounding playing that carries the tune without overdoing it.There are better records of Ella Fitzgerald with Joe Pass, if this is what one is looking for; Fitzgerald & Pass...Again, for example, is pretty nice."
Another great CD from the dynamic duo

"Although recorded 13 years later than their "Take Love Easy" sessions, these sessions sound great too. If you're a fan of this duo then you'll love this CD too. Jazz vocal/guitar duos that sound this good are rare. Between the two of them they really swing on some tunes. Every tune on this CD is great."
A true masterpiece...

"Ella Fitzgerald never sounded finer, then she did in this exellent Pablo session of intimate duets with gently swinging guitarist joe Pass. Fitzgerald's vocie had finally lost it's girlish innocence, and her vocie sounds womanly and knowing, she has more feeling in these songs then in her 50's Verve sessions. This set proves Ella had lost nothing through the years and she went out on top. This was Ella's 2nd to last session, and truly one of her most magnificent sessions. Here she gently swings on such jazz standards as "Love For Sale" and "I Want A Little Girl." Recomended.Also try Ella Fitzgerald & Joe Pass "Take Love Easy" their 1st pairing on the pablo label, and The Intimate Ella, her finest Verve seesion of duets with pianist Paul Smith."
