A TAV Essential Listening Album.

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. The backing, with the Oscar Peterson Trio and Louis Bellson substituting for Buddy Rich, remains, as in the first album, quiet, discreet, swinging.

"Once again (so to speak) Pops and the First Lady of Song seem to be singing in the room, right be-fore your eyes. (When I recently played Ella & Louis for a friend who's a prominent jazz critic, he liter-ally gasped and afterward likened the experience to "an acid trip.") ... their shivering cruise through 'Au-tumn in New York,' on Ella & Louis Again, is one of those essential artifacts of American civilization." — Fred Kaplan, www.stereophile.com, Aug. 10, 2012

"...these are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don't want to miss...most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of astounding. Particularly the early Billie and Ella mono rec-ords are incredible treasures of sonic beauty. I'd definitely ask Santa for the whole set, or, if you want to cherry pick, the most classic titles. Whatever you decide, you owe yourself at least a half dozen!" Winner of a 2012 Positive Feedback Online Writers' Choice Award - Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback Online, November/December 2011
