This collection of songs was originally recorded for the film "Let No Man Write My Epitaph," from 1960. It's an album that's just recently started to receive attention. This CD proves that Ella was more than capable of expressing great emotion in her singing. Many of the tracks, particularly "Angel Eyes" (which I can't stop listening to), are downright melancholy. She exudes so much maturity and elegance here, backed on the piano by Paul Smith, and her voice is at its absolute prime. Her versions of "My Melancholy Baby," "September Song," and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love" are definitive. This is the absolute best!
