Just One of those Things Fitzgerald Ella 1957
Ella Fitzgerald in 1957 in Amsterdam in a concert in "Het Concertgebouw." She is announced by "Jazz at the Philharmonic" producer Norman Granz. Her back-up is by her personal pianist Don Abney, but next to that is the incredible rhythm group of Ray Brown bass, Herb Ellis guitar and Jo Jones drums.
Isn't it remarkable that so much music recorded in the fifties and before sounds dated, but when one listens and witnesses this performance it could have been done today and it would be unique and stunning, just as it was then.
Also the extra dimension to not just hear the great Ella, but have it combined with the visual aspect, makes it the more enjoyable.
Thanks to the Dutch broadcasters who brought these file films from their archives back in the air again. Never to be lost!
