Louis and Ella and Oscar Make Us Smile ! !
arthur j murphy | Kenosha, Wisconsin | 12/05/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Besides being the world's BEST jazz pianist (Oscar), jazz songstress (Ella), and trumpet player (Louis), they loved each other's talents and knew how to have fun which rubs off on us listeners. Louis originated scat singing and Ella perfected it. To hear Louis' voice makes us smile and is such a sublime contrast to that perfect vocal instrument that Ella uses to soothe and thrill our ears. The recording is a masterpiece that entertains as few will ever do."

"This is definetely one of my top five favourite albums ever. I listen to it regularly and I never get tired of it. This occasionally amazes me. After all, this music is simple enough: standard jazz tunes, two voices, and a very discreet accompaniment by only a piano (and Peterson, who is so incredibly virtuoso when playing alone, is excellent at understating and remaining in background on this album), drums, a bass and sometimes Louis' trumpet. But the result is magical. Ella and Louis are perfect together, although their voices and styles couldn't be more different. Another reviewer described the blend as "gravel and molasses", and I couldn't put it better. Ella's sweet, pure voice and Louis' rough growl create a contrast that is just ravishing to the ear. And each song is filled with that discreet, subtle, intoxicating swing (kudos to the musicians as well as the singers, for that). Music like this can just brighten your day."
One of the best jazz vocal albums of all time...

"Ella & Louis Again is classic jazz at it's best, two legends in the studio jamming with Oscar Peterson's jazz combo, it doesn't get any better then this.Here are ten essential jazz vocal albums some are avaiable on CD(domestic, English or Japanese imports) some you'll have to hunt 2nd hand stores for, but all are worth looking for1 Ella & Louis Again by Ella Fitgerld &Louis Armstrong, 2 Connee Boswell & The Memphis 5 In Hi-Fi 3 Mel Torme Sings Fred Astaire 4 Anita O'Day-At Mr. Kelly's 5 Bing Crosby-Bing With a Beat 6 Sarah Vaughan & Her Trio-Swingin' Easy 7 John Coltrane+Johnny Hartman 7 Anita O'Day-Live In person 8 Lee Wiley-The Gershwin & Cole Porter Songbooks 9 Helen Humes-Swingin' With Humes 10 Frank Sinatra-Live In AustraliaThere are hundreds more, but this will get you inroduced to just a couple of the main jazz vocalists and albums (try to stay away from compilation of artists if you can get origional reissues unless the music is before the 50's and all there are are compilations)"
