Ella Fitzgerald Jazz at the Philharmonic: The Ella Fitzgerald Set Vinyl 2LP

This 2LP set is an updated version of its first vinyl release in Verve’s original Jazz At The Philharmonic archival series, now matching the expanded CD edition issued in 2016. It’s Ella fronting an all-star band, including Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Buddy Rich, et al, in performances recorded 1949 and 1953. And it’s now one dynamic set, with jaw-dropping interpretations of "Oh, Lady Be Good!," "Lullaby Of Birdland" and the jam session "Flying Home." Includes an essay by Will Friedwald.

Jazz at the Philharmonic: The Ella Fitzgerald Set was recorded through various performances between 1949 and 1954, with all original recordings being supervised by the label’s founder, and Fitzgerald’s longtime manager, Norman Granz. Highlights include jaw-dropping interpretations of “Old Mother Hubbard,” “Oh, Lady Be Good!,” “Lullaby of Birdland,” and the all-star jam session, “Flying Home.”

According to a press release, “The crown jewel of Jazz at the Philharmonic: The Ella Fitzgerald Set was the September 1949 performance at the famed Carnegie Hall-the engagement provides more than 45 minutes of music for this historic release.”
