If you like to listen to classic jazz vocalists, then this Ella Fitzgerald CD is sure to please.

Dec 30, 2017

Born into poverty in the town of Newport News, Virginia (1917) - Ella Fitzgerald (IMO) ranks right up there as being one of the greatest, female, jazz vocalists of all time.

A multiple music-award winner - Ella's career as a singer began in 1935 when she was just 17. Her career spanned for 50 years.

This top-notch "Best of the Song Books" CD contains 16 tracks in all which were recorded by Ella (along with accompanying musicians) in the years from 1956-1964.

Many of these tunes were penned by some of the most notable songwriters of the day, such as - Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, and George & Ira Gershwin.

Two of my favourite tracks are - "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered" and "Something's Gotta Give".

*Note* - In 1996 - Ella Fitzgerald (79 at the time) died due to extremely poor health.
