VERVE, 2017, CD
Instrument: FEMALE VOCAL
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: This is a live recording capturing Ella in her prime“at Zardi’s, a hot Los Angeles jazz spot during the 1950s. She’s ever the entertainer and is there to please her audience. Ella plays songs by request even when she doesn’t know the lyrics as on “Gone With The Wind”. She turns a difficult situation into a humorous adventure with her world class scatting. “Joe Williams Blues”, “Cry Me A River” and her famous “A-Tisket, A-Tasket” are just a few of the 21 classic tunes. This is very entertaining and one of the better collections giving us a glimpse of legend at work!
