We're of like mind. I have a box set, 30 or so CDs I think, that has ALL her songbooks!

My other favorite Ella recordings are her session with Louis Armstrong in 1956, (same era as the songbooks) and a little known quartet recording called Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie (1961).

Lots of great Herb Ellis in all those recordings too. He's a lesson in how to play with a band, or how to comp a singer.
