Simply a grand and eloquent performance put together by Verve records highlighting the best years of Ella Fitzgerald — that sassy, charming legendary singer in jazz. The Best of the Songbooks features a captivating lineup of some of jazz’s greatest composers and arrangers. It is here that Fitzgerald records and sings songs of Cole Porter, Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart, Duke Ellington, Irving Berlin, George & Ira Gershwin, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, and Johnny Mercer. Presented first is a rousing and captivating rendition of “Something’s Gotta Give,” a jazzed up, high stepping tune just right for finger snapping, with “enough brass to propel her across the finish line.” Blazing up the tune, Fitzgerald soon melts the engaging listener’s heart with the heartwarming ballad “Love is Here to Stay.” Perhaps the most challenging and appealing number from the Berlin songbook, “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm,” is sung most effectively, racing through with a sense of dignified grace like a master storyteller. After a dreamy ballad, Fitzgerald would usually close the set with the haunting “Miss Otis Regrets” as an encore, remaining one of her most requested songs. No other song brings to light her ability to glide into a song as the opening of “‘S Wonderful,” on which Fitzgerald adds a Charleston-era slang with great charisma in the verse.
