Ella Fitzgerald's idea to sing the songbooks of major writers proved smart, savvy, and artful. By the time she began to record Sings the Harold Arlen Song Book in 1960, she had sung the songbooks of Duke Ellington, Rodgers & Hart, and Irving Berlin. This relaxed and tastefully arranged set showcases Fitzgerald in her prime, confidently engaging 28 of Arlen's best songs. Familiar pieces like "One for My Baby" and "That Old Black Magic" make appearances, along with all-time classics like "Stormy Weather" and "Over the Rainbow." On this latter tune, she adds the front verses, an appealing addition that few will be familiar with. Billy May's orchestra lays down a quiet mix of horns and strings that perfectly supports Fitzgerald on songs like "When the Sun Comes Out" and "Happiness Is a Thing Called Joe." Four bonus tracks, including two alternative cuts, spice up the package. A particular oddity, "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead," converts surprisingly well into big-band jazz. Sings the Harold Arlen Song Book is an exquisite album, a classic in vocal jazz, and one of Fitzgerald's best 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.

Nat King Cole, a King for All

Timeless and universally adored, Nat King Cole would have celebrated his 100th birthday on March 17th, 2019. The sophisticated pianist and silky crooner was immensely popular with mainstream audiences in the forties and fifties, while still fascinating genuine jazz fans with his innate class. In the land of royalty, the King (Cole) had earned his place alongside the Duke (Ellington) and the Count (Basie).

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...
