Mu­sic: Ella Fitzger­ald

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - R14EVIEW -

Ev­ery time I hear Ella Fitzger­ald, the Amer­i­can jazz singer called ‘the first lady of song’, it brings back mem­o­ries of the year I worked in New York and dis­cov­ered jazz and blues. She had a tough life and it is re­flected in her voice, which car­ries such ex­pres­sion, rang­ing from pure joy as With A Song In My Heart (Rogers and Hart) to the depths of the deep­est emo­tion in Ev’ry Time We Say Good­bye (Cole Porter). There are songs in her vast reper­toire of Amer­i­can jazz mu­sic that hit ev­ery spot. She is the great­est!
