Ella and Louis. No last names are necessary, and no explanation for why this was a musical match made in heaven. There‘s been nothing like it in vocal jazz since these memorable mid-1950s Verve recordings which showcased Ella‘s plush voice and Louis‘ deep rumble. Satin meets sandpaper. It was the perfect chemistry. Now collected together are their duet recordings, previously released as Ella and Louis and Ella and Louis Again, plus two duets from Gershwin‘s Porgy and Bess and their 1950 classic, Dream A Little Dream Of Me. Nearly two hours and forty minutes of pure jazz classics on one double album, with fascinating liner notes by eminent Australian jazz writer Kevin Jones.
