Ella And Basie - A Perfect Match mp3 album

Ella and Basie! is a 1963 studio album by Ella Fitzgerald, accompanied by Count Basie and his orchestra, with arrangements by Quincy Jones. It was later reissued with slightly different cover art as On the Sunny Side of the Street. Surprisingly, Ella and the Basie band had only recorded together once before, on the 1957 album One O'Clock Jump.

A Perfect Match is a 1979 (see 1979 in music) live album by the American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald, accompanied by the Count Basie Orchestra, and featuring Count Basie himself on the last track. This is the last of four albums Fitzgerald recorded at Montreux Jazz Festival to be released. Ella's performance on this album won her the 1980 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Female. Two further tracks from this concert, "I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance With You" and "Flying Home" appeared on the 1979 album Digital III at Montreux.

2312-132 Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie - A Classy Pair 1982. Ray Brown, Sonny Cohn, Pete Minger, Nolan Smith, trumpet; Mel Wanzo, Dennis Wilson, Booty Wood, trombone; Bill Hughes, bass trombone; Bobby Plater, Danny Turner, alto sax; Eric Dixon, Kenny Hing, tenor sax; Charlie Fowlkes, baritone sax; Count Basie, piano; Freddie Green, guitar; John Clayton, bass; Butch Miles, drums; Ella Fitzgerald, vocals. 2312-140 Ella Fitzgerald And Andre Previn Do Gershwin - Nice Work If You Can Get It 1983. Andre Previn, piano; Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen, bass; Ella Fitzgerald, vocals.

The match-up was so logical that it would be repeated many times over the next 20 years. Fitzgerald sounds fine and, even if Quincy Jones' arrangements did not give the Basie musicians as much space for solos - although two songs do feature a bit of trumpeter Joe Newman, trombonist Urbie Green and Frank Foster on tenor - this is an enjoyable effort. High points include "Honeysuckle Rose," "Them There Eyes" and "Shiny Stockings.

Basie broke up the band in 1950 and formed an all-star septet. But he missed the power and glory of sixteen men swinging, so in the fall of 1951 the Count began to reassemble his orchestra.
