Grammy Award - Best Vocal Performance, Female, 1959 - But Not For Me

"... (I had) never known how good our songs were until I heard Ella sing them."
- Ira Gershwin

"... offers never-ceasing pleasure, supplied by one of the greatest singers ever born, accompanied by an extremely skillful orchestrator leading an orchestra of fine musicians."
- MusicWeb International

"The greatest of all her songbook projects ... nothing less than spectacular: full symphony orchestra rather than just piano ... everything is remarkably subtle, thanks not only to Fitzgerald's own singing but to the superlative, sublimely tasteful, ingenious orchestrations of pop music's greatest arranger, Nelson Riddle. It's impossible to imagine that with any set this large and this ambitious, that you'd be playing it over and over, as you would a great single, but that's exactly what goes on here."
- Wondering Sound

This 1959 six disc set from Ella Fitzgerald is the largest and most ambitious in her celebrated Song Book series, consisting of her interpretations of 59 Gershwin tunes, including her Grammy-winning version of But Not For Me. The album also marks Fitzgerald's first collaboration with arranger Nelson Riddle, a partnership that would yield further recordings in the 1960s.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
