Ella Fitzgerald did not revolutionise vocal jazz but embodied it. With her incredible range, her astounding sense of improvisation and her very own way of taking freedom by the scruff of the neck and making it swing like never before, she went through the 20th century never worrying about the trends or the evolution of jazz, a genre to which she gave so much. Before she became the queen of be-bop she was an orchestral singer, confronting all the instrumentalists with her powerful vocals. As she liked to say, "I just tried to do [with my voice] what I heard the horns in the band doing." Ella Fitzgerald made everything she touched her own, including the Great American Songbook, whose pages were filled by geniuses such as Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, George & Ira Gershwin, Rodgers & Hart, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer and even Cole Porter and Duke Ellington, two geniuses whose work features in this BD Music compilation. On this record we hear Fitzgerald make 42 tracks her own with her unique phrasing, her scat, her high-pitched scratches and the pure velvet of her vocals. Timeless. Marc Zisman/Qobuz


This double CD aims to present the best of the first three albums devoted to these "song books", which come from Duke Ellington (in the company of the duke and his men), Rodgers & Hart, and Cole Porter. There were without doubt some difficult choices to make due to the quality of Ella's interpretation, the richness of the musical material and the efficiency of the orchestrations in these fifty-year-old recordings.

Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Atlantic

Between 1967 and 1979, Aretha Franklin recorded her greatest albums for the label Atlantic. It was in these albums that she blended the gospel from her childhood with rhythm’n’blues and ultimately re-defined the boundaries of modern soul music.

John Coltrane, the Continuous Blow(n)

Just half a century ago, the American saxophonist passed away at only 40 years old, leaving behind many recordings which have revolutionized the history of his instrument, of jazz, and also of the music of the twentieth century.

Chris Connor, a Forgotten Voice

What if she really was the greatest cool jazz singer of them all? Almost a decade after she passed away, Chris Connor remains one of the most sensual voices of her generation. After all, there's more to life than Anita O'Day and June Christy...
