Allmusic.com gave Mack the Knife/Ella in Berlin a 5 star review:
Ella Fitzgerald was at the peak of her form during her 1960 tour of Europe. Her Berlin concert is most remembered for her hilariously inventive version of “Mack the Knife,” during which she forgot the words and substituted ones of her own that somehow fit, amazing herself in the process. … This is essential music.
You can listen to her amazing version of “How High the Moon” here:
