Description:
Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Johnny Mercer Song Book is a 1964 studio album by the American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald, with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, focusing on the songs of Johnny Mercer. This was Ella's fifth and final collaboration with Riddle during her years on the Verve label.

The album is notable as Ella's only songbook to concentrate on the work of a lyricist.

Riddle's lush arrangements interact most beautifully with Ella on ballads like 'Midnight Sun' and 'Skylark'. Ella's impeccable swing is most evident on 'Something's Gotta Give' and 'Too Marvelous for Words'.

This album was re-mastered and re-released by Polygram in 1984 and is currently available on cd.
