They called this “Scat Medley”, I call it pure GENIUS!
Ella Fitzgerald was one of a kind. Her singing was the epitome of phrasing, range and entertainment excellence. But her Scatting was a Work Of Art that nobody could touch.
If this performance doesn’t put a smile on your face, you just plain don’t know what enjoyment is. She has been one missed artist but in reality we’ll always have The Queen Of Jazz.
Live At Montreux June 22, 1969
