“Ella’s “songbook” albums for Verve were among Norman Granz’s great successes, and The Cole Porter Songbook became the commercial rock on which Verve was built.” - PENGUIN JAZZ TO JAZZ

“The ease with which Ella Fitzgerald interprets these timeless songs is hardly indicative of it, but this album was nonetheless a turning point for the singer.”- JAZZ MAGAZINE
