Ella & Louis

Ella and Louis is a 1956 studio album by Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, and the Oscar Peterson Quartet.

Ella & Louis

Norman Granz, the founder of the Verve label, selected eleven ballads for Fitzgerald and Armstrong, mainly played in a slow or moderate tempo.

The success of Ella and Louis was replicated by Ella and Louis Again and Porgy and Bess. All three were released as The Complete Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong on Verve. Jasen and Jones called the set a “pinnacle of popular singing”.
