Get Happy! by Ella Fitzgerald
Released: Jan 1959
A grab bag of late 1950s singles and rarities mixes standards, curios and wild scats with a couple of re-recordings of older hits. Ella's reading of "Blue Skies" with Paul Weston's band is a personal best (which means a genre best).Her scat solo on the Irving Berlin tune is perfect -- it pulls the band forward while commenting on the melody and the emotions of the lyrics.
