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