35 Songs, 1 Hour 54 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The First Lady of Song dipped into the considerable repertoire of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart for her second tribute to great American composers and lyricists. Released in 1956, it’s a reminder of both her technical and interpretive mastery and the impressive depth of Rodgers and Hart’s catalog. From “The Lady Is a Tramp,” “Where or When,” and “My Funny Valentine” to “Bewitched,” “My Romance,” and “Blue Moon,” this collection overflows with present-day standards. Fitzgerald also revisits lesser-known songs such as “The Blue Room” among the 34 tracks (which were sourced from 20 musicals) and revisits rarely sung verses. With Buddy Bregman arranging and conducting a wholly able orchestra, it’s an inspired meeting of legendary vocalist, superior songbook, and empathetic instrumentalists.
