Ella and Louis is a studio album by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong accompanied by the Oscar Peterson Quartet, released in October 1956. Having previously collaborated in the late 1940s for the Decca label, this was the first of three albums that Fitzgerald and Armstrong were to record together for Verve Records,later followed by 1957's Ella and Louis, Again, and 1959's Porgy and Bess.
Bjork chose the album as one of her favourites in a 1993 Q magazine feature. "I love the way Ella and Louis work together," she remarked. "They were opposites in how they sung, but were still completely functional together, and respectful of each other."
Track list includes Cheek to Cheek, Stars Fell on Alabama, They Can’t Take that Away, and Can’t We Be Friends? and more.
