On 4 September 1956 Ella Fitzgerald began work on one of the most ambitious albums of her career – Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Duke Ellington Songbook. It was her third songbook of the year, which began with the Cole Porter Songbook and The Rodgers and Hart Songbook. On 3 September 1957 Duke and his Orchestra recorded a piece composed for the album by Billy Strayhorn that was entitled, Portrait of Ella, a work in four movements. It, along with another Strayhorn instrumental, took up the final side of the second double album. Work was finally complete on the Ellington Songbook and this frenzy of recording meant that Ella recorded close to one hundred tracks in 1957.
