I usually prefer instrumental bop influenced jazz, finding the pop influenced vocal jazz music to be lacking in much depth, bu this album is definitely an exception. The interplay between the two voices and between Ella's singing and Louis' trumpet are exceptional. As well, the backing band does a terrific job, particularly Oscar Peterson on the piano. An excellent and smooth pop album from the jazz era.

From calsper
Really a great album and an interpretational classic / Ella and Louis are great vocalists who complement each other beatifully (Ella's velvet and Satchmo's roar of thunder).
Definitely recommendable to hear on a rainy Sunday or e.g. here at Christmas.
Merry Christmas to all music lovers and thank you so much to the creators for a great community.
