The third, and final, album that Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald recorded together was a break from the formula of the first two. Gone is the Oscar Peterson Trio and in their place is Russell Garcia’s Orchestra. Instead of another trawl through The Great American Songbook, which Ella herself was undertaking in her Songbook series, this record was dedicated to George and Ira Gershwin’s Porgy & Bess. Released to coincide with the 1959 movie adaptation of Porgy And Bess, in 2001, the album it was awarded a Grammy Hall Of Fame Award to mark recordings that are at least 25 years old, and which have qualitative or historical significance.
