5.0 out of 5 stars Ella Swings Brightly with Nelson Sept. 8 2012
By Dr. H. A. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
This was the first of a pair of LPs now on CD that Ella Fitzgerald recorded in 1959 and 1961 with Nelson Riddle, apart from the Great American Songbook releases of music by Mercer, Kern and Gershwin on which they collaborated. It opens with a swinging arrangement of Einar Swan's `When your lover has gone' and Benny Goodman's `Don't be that way'. Walter Donaldson's `Love me or leave me' to which Gus Kahn put words is given a solid slow beat. There are a couple of Duke Ellington compositions -`I'm gonna go fishin'' and `What am I here for?', Jerome Kern's `I won't dance' from Roberta and `Pick yourself up'. I didn't think the Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz number `Alone together' fared so well as an up-tempo number - but then I've been spoiled by Bob Manning's version! `Call me darling' appears here again as on Ella Swings Gently with Nelson in a very slightly different take, as does Gershwin's `Somebody loves me', lifted from the Gershwin Songbook album. Overall, this is a bright and cheerful collaboration with Ella and Nelson in great form.
