Jazz 100 - Ella Fitzgerald 12 Jun 2017

Jazz 100 - Ella Fitzgerald image

Her natural charm, pure tone, clear diction and perfect intonation allowed Ella to switch status at a stroke from homeless hoofer to star singer and kept her in the jazz audience and the twentieth century’s greatest songwriters’ hearts as the definitive interpreter of melody and lyric. An improviser par excellence, she brought sensitivity and sparkle to every beat.
