Notes

This Lp is un-banded with introductions. Side A is simply MC Willis Conover stating: "Miss Ella Fitzgerald". Side B is initially introduced by Conover who then turns over the mic to Johnny Mercer to introduce Billie Holiday. Towards the end of Mercer's comments he invites Gerry Mulligan to stay on the stage.

Label and cover variation, this version has the Verve 'trumpeter' labels.
