Arguably Ella's masterpiece.
This was originally both as five independent volumes (MGV 4024 to MGV 4029, then reissued as MGVS 6077 to MGVS 6081) and as a 5 LPs boxset (MGV 4029-5).
This specific 3 cd edition, though interesting, has been superseded by the canonical 4 cd 1998 reissue which adds alternate material to this.
