Ella in top form

I discovered this album in CD form years ago and it has been a mainstay of my jazz and standards mixes ever since. I find Ella's phrasing and voice are more mature in this recording than in others, which (for me at least) makes all the better to appreciate her talent. The composer isn't bad either. (Can you go wrong with Cole Porter? I mean, really.) 'After You' is a gem and probably my favorite track on the whole album - don't miss it. I beleive that the orchestration is typical of its time (70's) which I find in places to be great and in others less so. Maybe some other reviewer can comment on this. All in all a very good album, I think.
