Ella and Louis. No last names are necessary, and no explanation is needed for why this was a musical match made in jazz heaven.
Ella and Louis Again was recorded a year after the classic Ella and Louis, and it is a triumphant reunion - the level of artistry is just as high, the magic just as potent. With stellar support from the Oscar Peterson Trio and drummer Louie Bellson, and a repertoire that digs deep into the Great American Songbook, these two masters offer a textbook example of how this music should be sung-and swung.
"There isn't much one can say about an album whose title is Ella And Louis Again. The 'again' obviously means they've already done one album together and beyond that, what can you say about two people like Ella and Louis? I doubt that there's anyone today who loves music, who doesn't know Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. About all that can be pointed out, I suppose, is that we've again selected some of the best product of some of the best songwriters of our age. The backing, with the Oscar Peterson Trio and Louis Bellson substituting for Buddy Rich, remains, as in the first album, quiet, discreet, swinging." - Norman Granz, from the original liner notes of Ella and Louis Again
