Taken from a Jazz at the Philharmonic tour, Ella Fitzgerald is backed by pianist Oscar Peterson, guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Ray Brown, and drummer Jo Jones on two well-rounded sets. Actually, the two dates are quite similar, with eight of the nine songs being repeated (although the second "Stompin' at the Savoy" and "Oh, Lady Be Good" find her backed by a riffing eight-horn all-star group).The music is wonderful, there are variations between the different versions, and her voice was at its prime. The first record is a stereo recording of her concert on September 29, 1957 at the Chicago Opera House, whilst the second is the concert recorded in mono on October 7, 1957 at the Shrine Auditorium, in Los Angeles.
