Ella Fitzgerald & Louis ArmstrongElla & Louis ... CD
Verve, Late 50s. Used ... $2.99
Classic duets between Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong – done in a sweet mode that only could have been handled by Verve in the 50s! Backings are in a nice small combo mode – with Armstrong on both trumpet and vocals – and Ella and Louis carry most of the set with their great vocal interplay – warm, personal, and pretty darn charming – in a mode that should be hokey, but comes across great, thanks to the quality of both vocalists! Titles include "April In Paris", "Can't We Be Friends", "Isn't This A Lovely Day", "Under A Blanket Of Blue", and "A Foggy Day". CD
(Verve Master Edition.)

Ella Fitzgerald & Louis ArmstrongPorgy & Bess (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Poll Winners Records, 1957. Used ... $4.99
One of the hippest takes ever on the Porgy & Bess score – done in duet format by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, in a fuller spirit than their other albums for Verve! Like many late 50s albums of Gershwin's score, this one was issued in advance of the film with Sidney Poitier – but unlike most, this is less of a cash-in affair, and really takes Gershwin's music on its own – serving it up with that newly serious style that Verve was hitting with some artists, especially Ella, in the latter half of the 50s. Most tracks have relatively full backings – strings and jazz orchestrations – and the double-length set includes "Buzzard Song", "I Got Plenty O Nuttin", "My Man's Gone Now", "I Wants To Stay Here", "Summertime", "It Ain't Necessarily So", "What You Want Wid Bess", "There's A Boat Dat's Leavin Soon For New York", "Oh Lawd I'm On My Way", and "A Woman Is A Sometime Thing" – plus two live bonus tracks recorded the previous year.

VariousLes Disques De La Victoire – American Army V-Discs 1943 to 1949 (4CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1940s. New Copy 4CD ... $19.99 29.99
A really great overview of the V-Discs label of the 40s – the imprint started by the US Army as a way of circulating the jazz and swing sounds of the time to soldiers overseas! As you'd guess from the dates, the label was started during the American involvement in WWII – but then continued as a key part of its work in rebuilding the European scene of the postwar years – almost as a musical extension of the work of the State Department! Yet despite that governmental tie-in, the music here is all pretty darn great on its own – and given that most V-Discs titles were not available for commercial sale, they also represent a unique slice of the 78rpm market of the time. The 4CD set features detailed notes in French and English, 92 tracks in all, and some songs even include messages from the artists too – with work by Don Redman, Jo Stafford, Louis Prima, Duke Ellington, Earl Robinson, Frank Sinatra, Carson Robinson, Carmen Miranda, Frankie Carle, Lena Horne, Louis Armstrong, Glen Gray, Les Brown, Ella Fitzgerald, Randy Brooks, Kay Starr, Buddy Rich, Charlie Barnet, Spike Jones, Bob Crosby, Lionel Hampton, Benny Carter, Cab Calloway, Harry James, and many more!

✨✧ VariousNorman Granz – The Founder (4CD set) ... CD
Verve, Late 40s/1950s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
A mighty tribute to the great Norman Granz – not a jazz musician himself, but a man who forever changed the way that jazz was presented on record! Granz began as a soundman at MGM, but also created the famous Jazz At The Philharmonic series of recordings in the 40s – which soon grew to other recorded projects, as well as his early work on Clef and Norgran labels, before famously launching Verve Records too! This package brings together 44 key moments from the early years of Verve and related labels, including some unusual tracks too – titles that include "Picasso" by Coleman Hawkins, "I Blowed & Gone" by Dexter Gordon, "The Bloos" by George Handy, "Sono" by Harry Carney, "Vignette At Verney's" by Ralph Burns, "The New Basie Blues" by Count Basie, "Lullaby Of The Leaves" by Anita O'Day, "Slow Dance" by Fred Astaire, "Easy Living" by Buddy DeFranco, "Time After Time" by Lawrence Brown, "I Know That You Know" by Stuff Smith, "Budd Johnson" by Ben Webster, "Evil Eyes" by Terry Gibbs, "Chelsea Bridge" by Ben Webster & Gerry Mulligan, "Pig Ears & Rice" by Lionel Hampton, "I Thought About You" by Billie Holiday, "Yellow Rose Of Brooklyn" by Harry Edison & Buddy Rich, "Can't We Be Friends" by Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong, and lots lots more.
