• The complete original 1960 album ‘Ella in Berlin: Mack the Knife’ (originally on Verve). It contains Ella Fitzgerald’s celebrated performance at the Deutschlandhalle in Berlin, Germany, in its entirety.

• She is backed here by a quartet featuring Jim Hall and Paul Smith. One of Ella’s most popular albums ever, it won two Grammy awards in 1960. As a bonus, there is added a complete rarely heard live performance taped in July 1959, plus two 1956 tracks recorded live at the Hollywood Bowl that were mistakenly included on some issues of Ella in Berlin as belonging to the 1960 concert.

• Personnel : Ella Fitzgerald, vocals, on all tracks, plus : Paul Smith, piano; Jim Hall, guitar; Wilfred Middlebrooks, bass; Gus Johnson, drums - Deutschlandhalle, Berlin, Germany, February 13, 1960. Bonus Tracks: with Lou Levy (p), Max Bennett (b), Gus Johnson (d) - Cannes Jazz Festival, France, July 1, 1959. And with Paul Smith (p), Barney Kessel (g), Joe Mondragon (b), Alvin Stoller (d) - Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, August 15, 1956.

• Total Time: 70:57 mins. - 20 tracks - Includes 12-page booklet

• “This LP is a classic. Ella Fitzgerald is heard at the peak of her powers during a Berlin concert that is famous for her unique version of ‘Mack the Knife’; when she forgot the words in mid-performance, she substituted spontaneous and remarkable lyrics of her own. This music... is essential for all serious jazz collections.”(Scott Yanow, All Music Guide)
