Concord Playboy Jazz, 2002, CD
Instrument: FEMALE VOCAL
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Patti pays homage to the legendary Ella Fitzgerald singing a dozen songs that she made popular. She gives a classic performance on these classics from the jazz song books – “Honeysuckle Rose”, “Mr. Paganini”, “Miss Otis Regrets”, “Satin Doll” and “The Man I Love” are a few. Listening to Ella’s songs help us remember an icon while enjoying one of today’s best female voices (Austin). With the brilliance of the WDR Big Band behind her, this is a polished, professional performance sure to thrill many listeners.
