Joe Pass and Ella Fitzgerald

I've always thought that some of Joe Pass's best guitar playing appears on his recordings with Ella Fitzgerald. He comps beautifully while she is singing, and then lets loose with amazing solos during the breaks. The four albums are: Take Love Easy (1973), Fitzgerald and Pass... Again (1976), Speak Love (1983) and Easy Living (1986).
