Verve - The Sound Of America - The Singles Collection takes you through the history of one of the most influential jazz labels of all-time with tracks such as Ella Fitzgerald's Top 50 hit 'Mack The Knife' (1960); Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto 's Top 5, GRAMMY® Award winning hit 'The Girl From Ipanema' (1964) Jimmy Smith's Top 100 hit 'The Cat' (1964) and Diana Krall's 'The Look Of Love' (2001).
