The complete Norman Granz produced classic set of "Ella Fitzgerald Sings the George & Ira Gershwin Song Book" (Verve MGVS 6082-5). This was one of the most ambitious of the celebrated song books recorded by Ella and one of the best series of vocal jazz albums ever made. All of Ella's original performances are contained here, along with the two opening instrumental pieces that were included on a separate disc with the original 5LP set.

As a bonus, Ella's complete first attempt at recording a Gershwin song book is also included; the 1950 10" Decca LP "Ella Sings Gershwin" (DL5300), which presents the singer in eight amazing duets with pianist Ellis Larkins.

"I've never known how good our songs were until I heard Ella sing them." - Ira Gershwin
