“Fitzgerald was sometimes considered a poor “libretto” singer, more interested in swing and harmony than in the emotional weight of a song. That was generally left to singers like Billie Holiday pre-eminently, or Carmen McRae and Betty Carter. But with Porter, she was dealing with an artist whose rhythmic sophistication equalled her own and these songs in which rhyme and reason, music and meaning were pretty much the same thing. There have been misguided attempts to pass off the songs of Broadway and Tin Pan Alley as “America’s classical music”, which is somewhat missing the point. But if the word means anything at all, these performances are classics and among the first great works in the era of the long-playing record.”- Penguin Guide to Jazz

“Thanks to her producer Norman Granz’s advice, she embraced the music of legendary composer and lyricist Cole Porter for the first of a vast series of records, each of them dedicated to one of the contributors to the inexhaustible pool of popular songs of the Great American Songbook. From then on, Ella began to write a new page of her career, marked by a success the reasons of which are perfectly illustrated on The Essential Cole Porter Songbook” - Jazz Magazine
