Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

About Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

Both household names at the time of their first recording together, the dynamic duo of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong recorded their eponymous debut on August 16, 1956, in Hollywood’s then newly-built Capitol Studios. The record covered eleven standards with the backing of the Oscar Peterson Quartet. Although they had previously collaborated in the late 1940s for the Decca label, Ella and Louis began a critical and commercial streak for the pair, with many follow-ups under Norman Granz’s Verve Records; including 1957’s Ella and Louis Again and their 1959 collection of songs from the Porgy and Bess.
