Of Jo's albums, the very best for me is "Jo + Jazz," on Columbia. I also favor her excursions into folk material. The medleys with Ella are impressive; in addition to the 1961 one, there's another that impresses me even more. It's from the Benny Goodman special "Swing into Spring," 1958 or thereabouts.
