Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas

This audiophile CD reissue of Ella Fitzgerald's Christmas record (originally on Verve) brings back a lightweight but enjoyable set of Christmas cheer. Fitzgerald, backed by an orchestra conducted by Frank DeVol and an occasional vocal group, seems to have a good time on straightforward versions of such songs as "Jingle Bells," "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," "Winter Wonderland," and "Frosty the Snowman." No surprises occur but the music is certainly joyful.
If you love Ella and Christmas, it's a no brainer!
Been an Ella fan for 40 years and love her! It sounds good and she is on her game!
Just what I needed!
We're singing it loud for all to hear!
This is probably my favorite Christmas record.
Born: April 25, 1917 in Newport News, VA
Years Active: '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s
