Setting Up The Stage:

Reviewed by mojo

Ummm... you could buy this mp3 if you really really wanted to, but I wouldn't bother. I can't imagine why Amazon would offer this as a separate track except to flog another 89 cents out of you.

Oh, wait, I'm supposed to be hard-selling this stuff, huh? Ooooh! MP3! Buy! BUY!

even a money-grubbing dance-for-pennies hack like Mojo can't bring
herself to inspire people to buy this one. It's just a bunch of
applause, some of the musicians tuning up, and Ella and Norman Granz
saying stuff you can't really hear anyway. Probably incredibly banal
stuff like "Have a great concert, Ella; knock 'em dead!" and not at ALL
anything remotely interesting like "If you forget the words this time
that's it: I'm quitting!"

If you are STILL inexplicably consumed with curiosity, click here and buy the CD or the mp3 album.
You'll save money, it's a great CD, a great concert, and Mojo won't be
nickel-and-diming you into tiny separate independent republics every
time you turn around.
