The resultant album, Ella Sings Gershwin is lovely and while they are very different in presentation to Ella’s later foray into the Great American Songbook they are both perfect vehicles for her. I never knew how good our songs were until I heard Ella Fitzgerald sing them. A new song book meant a new arranger and Granz finally got Nelson Riddle into the studio with Ella, something he had been looking to do since he she had arrived at Verve. It was the perfect combination with Ella and Riddle developing a firm friendship
