'Original' Jazz Classics'

This CD places Ella Fitzgerald (then 60) in an unusual setting. Joined only by organist Jackie Davis and drummer Louie Bellson, she tackles a wide variety of material that ranges from "I'm Walkin'" and "I Cried for You" to "Mack the Knife" (which did not need to be remade) and "And the Angels Sing." Not one of her more essential releases, Lady Time does show that even at this fairly late stage in her career, Ella Fitzgerald could outswing just about anyone.

All Music Guide

========= from the cover ==========

Let me explain the title of this album. Years ago when Lester Young toured with Jazz At The Philharmonic, it was part of his speech pattern to preface-affectionately of course-different members of the group with Lady. (Yes, it was he who first called Billie Holiday Lady Day, as she told me.) Thus, he would say Lady Roy, Lady Hawk, Lady Oscar, Lady Granz, and so on.

Ella has made an impact beginning from the Chick Webb days in 1937 on all singers and especially jazz singers. It has never diminished to this day. There is no sense in repeating what others have done better: how great are her phrasing, pitch, harmonic sense, sense of melody, and so on. But for me the quality that typifies what Ella has going for her is her sense of time; in short, she swings, and she swings, I submit, better than any jazz singer in history. She ranks in that top level of artists who, apart from anything else, always swing; Harry Edison, Basie, Eldridge, Freddie Green, Peterson, and in the past, Armstrong and Nat King Cole.

Most musicians concede that Jackie Davis is by far the greatest swinger on organ today (as Basie puts it, "He's a bitch"), and Bellson's time is equally impeccable and unflagging.

Yes, I'm sure Lester would consider this album aptly titled, Lady Time.
