The last Decca years, 1949-1954 by Ella Fitzgerald( Recording )

The final music Ella Fitzgerald recorded for the Decca label, featuring collaborations with Louis Armstrong and arranged by Sy Oliver, encompassed both jazz and popular music. Ranging from the light-hearted "Goody Goody" to the evocative "Angel Eyes", these sides display the incedible breadth of Ella's ability and illustrate why she would become widely known as the "Quintessenital jazz singer."
