Music Monday celebrates Ella Fitzgerald

Born April 25, 1917, Ella Fitzgerald, often referred to as the First Lady of Song would’ve turned 100 this year.

To this day, there is no other singer I’ve heard with a voice as pristine as hers.

In this version of Bobby Darin’s classic, she forgets the lyrics and improvises the entire verse. And she scats like no one’s business!

If this song does not put a swing in your step, nothing will.

Smile and have a great week. 😀

  1. Being a Jazz lover, this woman’s voice is matchless!! Some of my favorites by her are “Autumn in New York,” “Azure,” and “How About Me.”

  6. I LOVE Ella Fitzgerald! At least once a week I listen to Ella or Billie radio—these gals always set me straight. They don’t sing like they used to…the ladies of jazz were onto something. 😉
