    Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound

    Fourteen numbers from the heyday of swing, composed sometime between 1930 and 1945 – played and sung time and time again in ballrooms, or on the radio to advertise biscuits or war bonds, were recorded by Ella Fitzgerald in completely new and personal interpretations in 1961. No one should be put off by the rather unfortunate cover. Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie is absolutely top notch as regards musicality, perfect recording quality, superb accompaniment by a small ensemble, with room for improvisations; it offers a wonderful opportunity to discover something new in these evergreens, despite the occasionally banal lyrics. The songs of this recording conjure up bygone days, with listeners in the 21st century being offered a highly personal homage to one of the most successful periods in the 100-year history of jazz.

    Originally released in 1962.
