This was the first album pairing Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong produced by Norman Granz for his Verve label. After recording a series of duets in the late 1940s for the Decca label, they were summoned by Granz in 1956 to make a series of sessions which would result in the present LP and two other further double sets. Ella and Louis received a five-star review in Downbeat at the time, and is considered today as one of the essential jazz albums of all-time still.
