‘ELLA FITZGERALD: THE VOICE OF JAZZ’ 10-CD BOX SET

 

First And Only Comprehensive Box Set Spanning Entire Career

Including Unreleased Live Recordings

Available Dec 10

 

 

Ella Fitzgerald’s vocal style was as incredible and diverse as the material that she sang. She started out a swing singer, moved to bebop, sang perfect scat, was an extraordinary jazz vocalist and had no fear of modern material as the 60s and 70s came along. From the blues to bossa nova, and calypsos to carols, Fitzgerald imbued all with her unique voice, sounding forever young.

 

On December 10, 2013, Verve Records/Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) will release the 10-disc box set Ella Fitzgerald: The Voice of Jazz, the first career-spanning retrospective of the most popular jazz singer and arguably one of the greatest singers of all time, Ella Fitzgerald. Featuring over 200 newly remastered studio and live tracks, including a previously unreleased concert from the 1960s, The Voice of Jazz is elegantly packaged in a linen-covered box and includes a 96-page, hardbound book that charts Fitzgerald’s career through her recordings plus photos and a complete discographical notation along with color and black and white illustrations.

 

From her days as Chick Webb’s girl singer, including her first ever release with Chick Webb’s Orchestra in 1935, through her rise as Decca Records’ singing star in the 1940s and early 1950s, to her decade-long career with Verve Records where she defined the long-playing record with her albums dedicated to the writers of the Great American Songbook. Ella Fitzgerald: The Voice of Jazz encapsulates the recording legacy of one of the most loved, admired and revered vocalists of the 20th century.
