Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 – June 15, 1996) was an American jazz singer often referred to as the First Lady of Song, Queen of Jazz and Lady Ella. She was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing and intonation, and a "horn-like" improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing. After tumultuous teenage years, Fitzgerald found stability in musical success with the Chick Webb Orchestra, performing across the country, but most often associated with the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem. 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.

Ella and Louis is an inspired collaboration, masterminded by producer Norman Granz. Both artists were riding high at this stage in their careers, and Granz assembled a stellar quartet of Oscar Peterson (piano), Buddy Rich (drums), Herb Ellis (guitar) and Ray Brown (bass). Equally inspired was the choice of material, with the gruffness of Armstrong's voice blending like magic with Fitzgerald's stunningly silky delivery

Ella And Louis is just such an album. When the first race records were produced in the late 1920’s, no one could predict their runaway success. The black community had never had their music on record before, and copies sold like hotcakes. New artists appeared every hour, making this music’s first real trend. By the time Verve got them together in a studio, both Fitzgerald and Armstrong were already established performers. The first had recorded such hits as A-Tisket, A-Tasket and Lullaby In Birdland ; the latter was one of the most influential names of the budding jazz scene. To have them make an album together seemed like a more than logical idea. But the ending result of this experience was far more than a sales ploy: it went on to become one of the hallmarks of jazz, and if possible made Ella and Satchmo even MORE respected within the jazz circles.
