Description

Limited edition 180g premium vinyl for super fidelity, presented in a deluxe gatefold sleeve.

'Porgy & Bess' was the third and final album collaboration between Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and producer Norman Granz. Featuring songs from the George & Ira Gershwins opera, which was inspired by the DuBose Heyward play 'Porgy', it received both critical acclaim and commercial success internationally.

"As the tracks progress, you think she is cutting Armstrong - only to turn around and believe that Armstrong is cutting her. The truth, of course, is that they are outdoing themselves. This is a Porgy performance you would be ill-advised to miss." - Gene Lees, DownBeat
