    This best-of features selected highlights of the second of the Song Books that Ella Fitzgerald recorded for the Verve label in the mid 1950s. Her voice, with its uncanny bell-like timbre, is the perfect vehicle for conveying the sheer beauty of classic songs such as "My Funny Valentine," "It Never Entered My Mind," and "I Could Write a Book." The exuberant "The Lady Is a Tramp" beats Frank Sinatra at his own swingin' game, yet retains the ladylike dignity which characterized Fitzgerald even when she was having the most fun.
