Unbelievable Collection for Everyone
The artists and renditions on this album were picked like the sweetest of fruit from the tree that is the Cole Porter Songbook. The big names of the ones you know are as good as always, but the sweetest for me are a little deeper in the bowl, listening to Fred Astaire's 'I Concentrate on You', Blossom Dearies "Always True to You in My Fashion', I had heard neither before I heard them on this collection. Cole Porters lyrics are as true today as when written, his rhythms as great as well. Finish by turning up the volume on Billy Eckstine & Quincy Jones 'In the Still of the Night', and feel like you are at the Copa having cocktails with the greats.
These great tunes deserve to be iTunes Plus versions.
Amazingly, I didn't have many of these particular songs by these artists in my collection. But the studio who released this should have allowed iTunes to have it as an iTunes Plus selection. 256 bit recordings sound much better than 128 bit with these kinds of vocals. Please, release this as a 256 bit album, okay? The 128 bit recording standard is just too low--it needs more quality for my stereo and custom speakers.
My Top 10 Favorite Albums
This album is one of my top 10 favorite albums!! I know that no matter what I am doing I can listen to this album and feel happy! Every single song is great!! Ella's version of "Night and Day" is my favorite compared to all the other versions of that song. I also find "Let's Do It" such a fun song for many reasons :-) I could go on and on about every single song! Enjoy!
