Ella Fitzgerald CDs with Maynard Ferguson


ELLA FITZGERALD, ELLA FITZGERALD SINGS THE COLE PORTER SONG BOOK -- Verve 314 537 257-2

As I'm sure you know, MF played with the Buddy Bregman Orchestra, backing Ella on this now-classic 1956 recording. It originally was a double LP. Here it is as double-CD. This is perhaps one of the greatest albums by Ella, much less ANY jazz artist. It's an absolute classic. This double CD lists in excess of $30.00.
NO COPIES AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.

ELLA FITZGERALD, KEN BURNS JAZZ-- Verve 314 549 087-2

Here's a great Ella Fitzgerald CD that was pressed to accompany the PBS TV show Ken Burns Jazz. It includes Ella with the Buddy Bregman Orchestra on Night and Day. This track, of course, is from the Cole Porter Song Book LP, and was recorded 3/27/56. Maynard, of course, is in the trumpet section. And ... this is a really great CD, regardless of the fact that Maynard appears on it. It's a rather complete retrospective of Ella's tunes through the years, and includes some of her biggest hits.
COPY #1. Here's a lightly used, but pristine copy of this great recording. The case, liners, and disc are like new -- NMINT+. Yours for $10.00.
