"... a musical match made in heaven."
- Audiophile Audition

"... Pops and the First Lady of Song seem to be singing in the room, right before your eyes."
- Stereophile

"... captures some of the finest vocal work of the past century ... a highlight of the 1950s, a busy time for classic vocal jazz records ... both were in fine form, Fitzgerald's sweetly melodic voice contrasting nicely with Armstrong's coarse rasp ... Fitzgerald and Armstrong sound positively ebullient together ..."
- All About Jazz

This is the first of two collections of popular tunes Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong teamed up to record in 1956 and 1957. Produced by the legendary Norman Granz, these sessions feature an all-star group of musicians including Armstrong on vocals and trumpet, Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass and Buddy Rich on drums.
96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – The Verve Music Group Studio Masters

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue recording. It may contain noise, distortion or other artifacts, and may also contain audio which is limited in bandwidth and dynamic range, due to the technology available at the time of its original creation. As such, it is offered as a high-resolution documentation of a historical release.

Tracks 1 - 11 contain monophonic material - i.e., both channels are identical

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
