Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, great mutual admirers, team up for 16 songs from the famous George Gershwin opera. Although this would not be considered either's finest moment on record, it may very well be the most satisfying jazz version of Porgy & Bess. Russ Garcia's arrangements for the large orchestra work very well with the two singers.
