Her 1945 scat recording of "Flying Home" arranged by Vic Schoen would later be described by The New York Times as "one of the most influential vocal jazz records of the decade. Where other singers, most notably Louis Armstrong, had tried similar improvisation, no one before Miss Fitzgerald employed the technique with such dazzling inventiveness Verve years. Austin's album, For Ella (2002) features 11 songs most immediately associated with Fitzgerald, and a twelfth song, "Hearing Ella Sing" is Austin's tribute to Fitzgerald. The album was nominated for a Grammy. Her accompanist Tommy Flanagan affectionately remembered Fitzgerald on his album Lady be Good.
Her scat recording of ‘Flying Home’ (1945) was one of the most influential vocal jazz records of the decade. Her bebop recording of ‘Oh, Lady Be Good!’ (1947) was equally popular. Her studio album ‘Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Duke Ellington Song Book’ earned her a Grammy. The album was released in two volumes. The entire Songbook series was highly acclaimed critically and was also commercially successful. Critics called the Songbook series her most valuable gift to American culture.
If you like the one of the greats of the American Songbook, and you love the voice and style of Ella, what's not to like about this album. Her interpretations of his songs are spot on. She gets his sophistication in a truly wonderful way.
