Member and PIO! Songs Editor Val Smalkin recommends this classic and we can see why!
I grew up in a family of jazz musicians so Ella Fitzgerald is still the Queen for me. Children can be introduced to sophisticated music through Ella’s version. I always wondered if she did this for her children. The year of this video is 1983 so I’m guessing yes, but it could have been for grandchildren. What can one say about Ella’s voice that has not already been said? Every time I listen to her I am blown away by her absolute true pitch and inspired improvs. Did you know that I have a pair of her shoes that a friend got from her estate and gave to me? I put them on for inspiration.
