If you asked a passing stranger who the most famous female jazz singer was, Ella Fitzgerald would almost certainly be the first name to spring to mind. Sometimes called The First Lady Of Song , her record sales testify to the fact that she was the most popular US female jazz singer for over 50 years. In a career that started with her first recording in 1936 and lasted until the early Nineties despite coronary bypass surgery in 1986, she recorded over 200 albums that sold over 40 million copies and won 13 Grammy awards. In 1955 Fitzgerald left Decca Records and joined the newly founded Verve. This 3 disc compilation showcases the wide-ranging vocal capabilities of a legendary singer as she delivers some of the most famous songs from her repertoire, sung at the height of her career
