Reseña de álbum

Are you one of those people who can't walk through the jazz section without mooning over the lavishly packaged and heart-droppingly expensive 16-disc Complete Ella Fitzgerald Song Books set? If so, you're not alone, and Verve knows it. So to keep you from bemoaning your fate, the company has been releasing single-disc compilations drawn from the set — the first was an overview entitled Best of the Song Books: The Collection, the second a perfect bachelor pad accessory called simply Best of the Song Books: The Ballads. This latest one appears redundant at first glance — why follow Best of the Song Books: The Ballads with Best of the Song Books: Love Songs? — but a listen dispels that impression quickly. Though there are several excellent slow numbers, including glorious versions of "Prelude to a Kiss" and "I Concentrate on You," the album is dominated by mid- and uptempo standards such as "I'm Beginning to See the Light," "I Let a Song Go out of My Heart" and "Love You Madly." The settings vary from the lush orchestrations of Nelson Riddle and Billy May to standard small-group arrangements, though the focus is on larger ensembles. That's kind of too bad, since Ella always seemed to loosen up a bit more with her small groups — one of the most beautiful moments on this disc is her rendition of "Solitude," on which she is accompanied only by Barney Kessel's guitar. But every track is a wonder, and though it won't stop you from pining after the whole thing, this disc is a welcome window on the Song Books set.

"The First Lady of Song," Ella Fitzgerald was arguably the finest female jazz singer of all time (although some may vote for Sarah Vaughan or Billie Holiday). Blessed with a beautiful voice and a wide range, Fitzgerald could outswing anyone, was a brilliant scat singer, and had near-perfect elocution; one could always understand the words she sang. The one fault was that, since she always sounded so happy to be singing, Fitzgerald did not always dig below the surface of the lyrics she interpreted...
