Shot in Belgium, this 1957 concert has her performing with jazz greats Ray Brown, Herb Ellis, Jo Jones and the legendary Oscar Peterson on classics such as Lullaby of Birdland, and It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing). The second show is an intimate in-studio performance from 1963, taped in Sweden, featuring Ella backed by a quartet including pianist Tommy Flanagan. Highlights include stellar versions of Mack the Knife and Just One of Those Things. 56 minutes.
