I very much enjoyed those tunes where Ella is backed by old friend Joe Pass and his strong, soulful guitar. These include "I've Got The World On A String" and "The One I Love." Also of note was Ella's version of "Our Love Is Here To Stay," a song I've always had a thing for. Here Ella does it full justice, with the help of Previn's magical piano work.
Overall, a fine collection of love ballads by one of the great singers of our time.
