Ella Fitzgerald: “Someone to Watch Over Me” (Video)

Ella with LSO

Sorry to have missed posting about it yesterday – Happy Thelonious Monk Centennial!

In my opinion there should have been parades!

 

This year we celebrate the centenary of another member of jazz royalty, the incomparable vocalist Ella Fitzgerald. On September 29th, Verve released a CD of the singer in fine voice, accompanied by newly orchestrated arrangements performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. I am not often a fan of posthumous mashups, but this project is a beautiful tribute to an extraordinary artist.
