    This eponymous collection from the Past Perfect label collects 37 performances from Ella Fitzgerald's time with the Decca label during the late '30s and '40s -- a period where she was blooming but not yet in full flower. It's also a period that's been surveyed hundreds of times since the beginning of the LP era, and the sound is closer to fair than perfect. With just a few exceptions, ballads and standards are the order of the day, including "How High the Moon," "Oh, Lady Be Good," and "I'm Beginning to See the Light." ~ John Bush
