April in Paris Fitzgerald Ella 1957

The travelling American jazz organisation called Jazz At The Philharmonic under the leadership of Norman Granz would travel the world. For a concert in the Netherlands a concert was planned in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw on May 5 1957, Liberation Day.
In this clip we see a performance of Ella Fitzgerald singing "April in Paris".
For this she used her house pianist Don Abney as well as probably one of the most swinging rhythm groups to be found. We see and hear Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown bass and Jo Jones drums.
