“…these are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don’t want to miss…most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of astounding. Particularly the early Billie and Ella mono records are incredible treasures of sonic beauty. I’d definitely ask Santa for the whole set, or, if you want to cherry pick, the most classic titles. Whatever you decide, you owe yourself at least a half dozen!” Winner of a 2012 Positive Feedback Online Writers’ Choice Award – Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback
1957 was a very good year for Ella! She was really at the top of her game..and this album is a perfect reflection “like someone in love” is really just a collection of songs to fall in love to…….not unlike Nat’s “love is the thing” or Sinatra’s “only for lonely”…..
Musically this album is a great collaboration of soft orchestra, warm sax , piano and the unmistakeable voice of dear Ella! “what will I tell my heart” and the title track are simply “tear-your-heart-out” gorgeous ……..really a great moment! Stan Getz plays the tenor sax as well on this album and adds some fantastic warmth throughout. “Like someone in love” is another carefully mastered Verve Records jazz album from Analogue Productions who strived to deliver the best sound this album has ever received. This album was mastered by George Martino who skillfully brought this long lost gem back to life The album is well balanced and well mixed with definite clarity on Ella’s voice and offers nice orchestra separation. There are a few small imperfections with the master tapes but I guess that is expected considering it’s age….but nothing that will get in your way of totally enjoying this thrilling album from start to finish. ….but again I’ll take these vs an altered remaster!!! Overall a simply beautiful album given a whole new lease on life with this release., Essential for Ella lovers…. 5/5 LPreview
Arranged by Frank DeVol and enlivened by what the liner notes described as the “sensitive, poignant saxophone solos of Stan Getz” on four tracks, Like Someone In Love was targeted at “people in love.” But its real audience, then as now, was anyone who loves timeless songs impeccably sung. What was timeless in 1957 still is. Originally released in 1957.
