Arlen was the most jazz orientated of Broadway composers, so this Ella songbook is especially tasty. Great songs (many with lyrics by Johnny Mercer, who later rated his own Ella songbook); great big band and orchestral charts (by Billy May); and great jazz musicians (such as Plas Johnson, Lou Levy, and Herb Ellis) equal a great album.
