Just putzing around in the shop, radio on the jazz show, and BAM! Ella Fitzgerald comes on and blows my socks off. Damn she was good, so fluent and just a badass musician. I knew all this of course, but when she comes on the radio, you don't expect it. It surprised me...the contrast with the rest of the music was intense!

Ella in Rome on her 41th birthday is the one I play most often of the massive collection I've got.
My daughter is named Ella.

I think a lot (certainly not all) of music is more about marketing than art these days

The one on the radio was Ella at Newport Jazz Festival. Don't know the song. It was a flashy number, all scat. Ella's a nice name, Chris!

Not quite the same as today's album covers. Back in the day the music was what mattered....
