 This is a one of several L/Ps that I have that demonstrates how good Stereo recordings can be....So if you have a good Stereo System and want some knockout sounds give this one a go...hopefully nothing will be lost in the transfer to the digital.....Best track has got to be
"Careless Love"..There will be more good instrumental Stereo L/Ps Later on

 This Ella L/P is an American release recorded after most of the song books with a good solid big band sound...not many strings so it has a good Jazz and Swing feel to it...All brilliant tracks favourite one is "You Can Depend On Me"


P.S. This L/P of Ella's is one of the best of her "Studio" Recording's...The "Big Band" sound arranged and conducted by "Bill Doggett" captures the essence of her "Jazz At The Philharmonic" days and as the sleeve notes says "Ella Is Having the time of her life" and I agree it's definitely "Ella In Concert Mode" !!!......Love the cover photo!!!
