Our take

The First Lady of Song. The Queen of Jazz. Lady Ella. Noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing, timing, intonation, and a "horn-like" improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing.

One of Fitzgerald's most acclaimed live performances, at this concert in Berlin, Ella improvised lyrics for "Mack the Knife" after forgetting the original lyrics. This album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999, which is a special Grammy award established in 1973 to honour recordings that are at least twenty-five years old, and that have "qualitative or historical significance."

Since many of our visitors are at the beginning of their vinyl voyage, we thought it'd be helpful to have a starter's compass.
