Ella in Hollywood is a live 1961 (see 1961 in music) album by Ella Fitzgerald, with a jazz trio led by Lou Levy, recorded in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

This album features Ella at the height of her vocal powers, one month before the recording of her most critically acclaimed studio album, Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie!.

Ella in Hollywood features several songs that serve as starting points for Ella's seemingly effortless scat solos, and a selection of beautiful ballads balance out the album.

For many years, the album was only available on CD as a Japanese import, but in April 2009 Verve finally gave it a worldwide CD release [1].
