Whoever decided to put pianist Marty Paich and Ella Fitzgerald together in the studio in 1966 deserves a bit of credit for the great music on Whisper Not. Together, Fitzgerald and Paich deliver a dozen beautifully sung, carefully arranged standards. An orchestra tastefully backs Fitzgerald’s vocals, offering cushy support without overdoing it. … Whisper Not captures two intelligent artists working toward a common goal and creating beautiful music in the process.
