HDtracks.com Puts The Verve Music Group's
Classic Jazz Session Ella and Louis in High Definition

New York, N.Y.-HDtracks.com, the world's pre-eminent high-resolution music downloading Web site, offering spectacular CD and DVD-audio-quality downloads, is pleased to announce the addition of The Verve Music Group's legendary Ella and Louis to its ever-growing online store, in amazing, crystal-clear 96kHz/24-bit sound. The 11-track album features legendary jazz artists Ella Fitzgerald (vocals) and Louis Armstrong (trumpet and vocals) in a 1956 recording of music of timeless composers Irving Berlin, George and Ira Gershwin, Kay Swift and many others. Ella and Louis also features world-renowned jazz artists Oscar Peterson (piano), Herb Ellis (guitar), Ray Brown (bass) and Buddy Rich (drums).

Tracks include Irving Berlin's "Isn't This a Lovely Day?" and "Cheek to Cheek," George and Ira Gershwin's "They Can't Take That Away From Me" and "A Foggy Day," Karl Suessdorf and John Blackburn's "Moonlight in Vermont," Jerry Livingston, Al J. Neiburg and Marty Stynes' "Under a Blanket of Blue," Walter Gross and Jack Lawrence's "Tenderly," Frank Perkins and Mitchell Parish's "Stars Fell on Alabama," Hoagy Carmichael and Ned Washington's "The Nearness of You," Vernon Duke and E.Y. Harburg's "April in Paris," and Kay Swift and Paul James' "Can't We Be Friends?"

The recording puts listeners in the middle of the session, revealing every nuance of the First Lady of Song's lyrical voice and Armstrong's classic trumpet and vocal sounds. The 96kHz/24-bit techonology transports the amazing artists directly into listeners' living rooms.

As with all HDtracks.com downloads, Ella and Louis includes full PDF liner notes to provide context and enrich the listening experience.
