The intimate series of duet albums that Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass recorded for Pablo made two things perfectly clear regarding the First Lady of Song: her celebrated musicianship remained exceptional after four decades in the limelight, and her ability to get inside the meaning of a lyric and convey it to an audience had been woefully underestimated. Pass, who gets to display the subtler aspects of his own virtuosity and his overlooked strengths as an accompanist, was the perfect partner for an effort where the relaxed “after hours” feeling intensified the level of communication. Duke Ellington’s songbook is generously represented by four titles, “’Tis Autumn” and “Tennessee Waltz” are transformed, and there are spellbinding wordless performances of “Rain” and “One Note Samba.”
