CD Reviews

As good as it gets
R. McCreery | Dallas, TX, USA | 12/21/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If I have any warning at all before I leave this world, I will ask to hear Fitzgerald singing Gershwin while I eat my last meal. On the heels of Ella, the glory of the angels' voices won't be so much of a shock."
Lovely music but...
Nikica Gilic | Zagreb, Croatia | 04/18/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, this is a lovely piece of music;
Ella Fitzgerald is a superb singer, no doubt about it, the Gershwin material is more than suitable for her tallents and yet I feel somewhat dissatisfied... Well, I am a jazz fan, so the arrangements based on strings will hardly thrill me, but even the songs arranged without the strings are more Broadway than jazz...
And there are many singers who can sing good Broadway, so it's a pity Ella is used for a Broadway treatment of these songs.

However, this is a cultivated and subtle popular music, so I give it 4 stars, a bit more than I actually feel for the album."
