Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Harold Arlen Songbook

Ella is still the best and this is my favorite of her songbook series. Anyone who can make Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead swing the way she does is someone very special.
Ding dong ding dong...
And who'd have thought there would be such a resurgence of interest in that song in 2013? :)
My advice: don't just buy the Witch is Dead - though it rocks, way better than the Munchkins version - get the whole songbook! It's great!! Wonderful arrangements, clear recordings and they still sound great after compressing for iTunes. Perfect Sunday morning music - or late evening music. Let the Iron Lady introduce you to the First Lady - of Song. Might be one of her greater contributions to the universe.
