To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I’ve always enjoyed Ella and a vocalist is always in my opinion stretched when backed by a small group. The performances on this show demonstrate just his fine a song stylist Ella was across a range of numbers. It’s a varied set with some lesser heard songs and plenty of favourites. She is at the top of her skills. Her musicians are also top notch and the result is a happy set with great audience reaction too. I’m just so glad to hear this previously unreleased tape. The overall sound quality is very good whilst not being of indoor studio controlled quality but it still gets a 5 from me. Included is a liner notes booklet and the packaging is of laminated cardboard opening up like albums used to do.
The music speaks for its self and is just wonderful to hear after all these years. What is really outstanding is the sheer quality of the vinyl pressing its self. No ticks bangs or other obnoxious noises, with a silky smooth black background. This is an object lesson on how to create a brilliant vinyl record. Some other manufactures should have a listen to this, then call Verve and ask how they produced it.
Arrivato oggi, questo bellissimo album rimasto chiuso nel cassetto per quasi 60 anni, ora questa meraviglia è disponibile per alietare nuovamente le nostre orecchie dalla meravigliosa voce di sua maestà Ella Fitzgerald. Non voglio parlare della qualità della registrazione perché sarebbe inutile davanti ad un capolavoro edito 60 anni dopo. Il concerto è strepitoso già dal primo solco. Mi spiace per tutte quelle pippe che si credono grandi cantanti, ma la Regina è sempre lei, senza bisogno di trucchi, synth, etc... Solo la sua voce e un trio di strumenti.
Siebzehn Songs sind wieder da! Ella ist zurückgekehrt und gibt ein wunderbares Konzert in Berlin. Einfach die Augen schließen, sich dieser Stimme aussetzen und spüren wie die Härchen auf der Haut sich aufrichten: Gänsehaut!
