No two artists are more closely identified with producer Norman Granz and with Pablo Records than Ella Fitzgerald and Oscar Peterson. At the time of this recording, the singer and pianist had shared concert stages on Jazz at the Philharmonic and other Granz touring packages for a quarter-century, building reputations that put each on a first-name-only basis with audiences the world over. Their individual genius for blending virtuosity and sensitivity and for infusing every note with a spirit of affirmation was reinforced when they held this intimate meeting. On four tracks they are assisted by the equally formidable bassist Ray Brown, who was Fitzgerald's musical director (and her spouse) before beginning his lengthy tenure as Peterson's accompanist.
