Two Original Albums On 180g Vinyl Double LP!
Includes Bonus Tracks!

One of Fitzgerald's most acclaimed live performances. At this concert in Berlin, Fitzgerald improvised lyrics for "Mack the Knife" after forgetting the original lyrics. In recognition of this, she received the Best Female Vocal Performance. This album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. During her Scat solo on "How High the Moon", Fitzgerald quotes the Charlie Parker composition "Ornithology", which is in fact based on the chord changes for "How High the Moon", as a springboard for her own scat improvisation. This recording of "How High the Moon" is considered one of Fitzgerald's best scat solos, if not one of the best in jazz.

Ella in Hollywood features several songs that serve as starting points for Ella's seemingly effortless scat solos, and a selection of beautiful ballads. This album features Ella at the height of her vocal powers.

"Ella Fitzgerald was at the peak of her form during her 1960 tour of Europe. Her Berlin concert is most remembered for her hilariously inventive version of 'Mack the Knife,' during which she forgot the words and substituted ones of her own that somehow fit, amazing herself in the process. With fine support from her quartet -- pianist Paul Smith, guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Wilfred Middlebrooks, drummer Gus Johnson -- Fitzgerald is brilliant throughout the well-rounded set, with highlights including 'Misty' (a version very different from Sarah Vaughan's), 'The Lady Is a Tramp,' 'Too Darn Hot,' and a scat-filled 'How High the Moon.' This is essential music." - AllMusic
