Porgy and Bess (Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong album). Porgy and Bess (Oscar Peterson and Joe Pass album). The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess. Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971), nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American jazz trumpeter, composer and singer who became one of the pivotal and most influential figures in jazz music. His career spanned from the 1920s to the 1960s, covering many different eras of jazz. Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an "inventive" trumpet and cornet player, Armstrong was a foundational influence in jazz, shifting the focus of the music from collective improvisation to solo performance

The first involved Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, and came together during the autumn of 1957 with brassy big band and lush orchestral arrangements by Russ Garcia. This is the classic Verve Porgy & Bess, and it's been reissued many, many times. The second, recorded during the spring and summer of 1976 and issued by RCA, brought Ray Charles together with versatile British vocalist Cleo Laine, backed by an orchestra under the direction of Frank DeVol

The third, and final, album that Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald recorded together was a break from the formula of the first two. Gone is the Oscar Peterson Trio and in their place is Russell Garcia’s Orchestra. Instead of another trawl through The Great American Songbook, which Ella herself was undertaking in her Songbook series, this record was dedicated to George and Ira Gershwin’s Porgy & Bess. Released to coincide with the 1959 movie adaptation of Porgy And Bess, in 2001, the album it was awarded a Grammy Hall Of Fame Award to mark recordings that are at least 25 years old, and which have qualitative or historical significance.
