Really only meant for brand new fans of Ella Fitzgerald, To Go: Stick it in Your Ear collects six of her most famous songs on one, 20-minute album. Even those fairly unaware of Fitzgerald's catalog of work are probably familiar with "The Lady Is a Tramp," "Mack the Knife," and "A-Tisket, A-Tasket" -- staples of the Great American Songbook. To Go: Stick it in Your Ear contains nothing out of the ordinary or unexpected, and being that it's so short, it misses a lot of Fitzgerald's other songs. It's cheap, that's true, but that's about its only redeeming characteristic.
