30 By Ella (Bonus Tracks)
Released: Jan 1962
Label: Blue Note Records
What could have been just an oddball experiment resulted in a wonderful album. Who knows why they had Ella and seven jazz musicians cram thirty songs onto one disc, but the results are worth it. Ella's voice is at its purest, and she works perfectly with Benny Carter's laid-back charts and saxophone. Also on hand are "Sweets" Edison, Jimmy Jones and Louie Bellson.
