DIGIPACK EDITION

More than half a century later and to celebrate the year of Ella Fitzgerald’s centennial (she was born April 25th 1917), we can share this release formed by two previously unreleased concerts by the great singer. In both sets she was the closing attraction of a Jazz At The Philarmonic package. During the 1950s and 1960s Ella was, by far, one of the most beloved jazz singers around Europe. Between 1952 and 1965 she performed here almost every year, always brought by her manager Norman Granz.

In 1957 she was preceded by Roy Eldridge, violinist Stuff Smith and the Oscar Peterson Trio and accompanied by pianist Don Abney, guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Ray Brown and drummer Joe Jones. The 1960 concert first presented Roy Eldridge, the Jimmy Giuffre trio and the Shelly Manne quintet before Ella began her performance with pianist Paul Smith, guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Wilfried Middlebrook and drummer Gus Johnson.
