Tuesday, September 29, 2009 - 17:41 Ella Sings "Lady is a Tramp" mojo

Okay, so first you have to suffer through "Them There Eyes". (It's a JOKE, people!) Around the 3:00 mark she starts in with "Lady is a Tramp". A little slower tempo than usual, but still pretty awesome.... ("...

Wednesday, October 7, 2009 - 16:05 Ella Singing "The Man I Love"--1974 mojo

This clip is apparently from a live show in Holland in 1974. Hang on until after the first stanza--they have fun with it! Total reimagining--I promise! And dang--if you're not an Ella fan, you WILL be!

Wednesday, October 7, 2009 - 16:13 Ella Singing "The Man I Love"--1974 mojo

This is another 1974 television recording, this time in Germany. Looks like the same personnel as the Holland clip. They play with it, but differently than Holland. ("SHUT UP! Not a SOUND!")

Wednesday, October 7, 2009 - 16:23 Ella Sings "The Man I Love" and "Body and Soul" mojo

Not sure what year this is--I'm guessing the late 70's. A pretty straightforward version, followed (after the 2:00 mark) by "Body and Soul".

Ella at her peak (of course, her peak speanned something like THIRTY FREAKIN' YEARS), in 1957, at a JATP show in Amsterdam. The announcer is Norman Granz himself, a name Ella fans know very well.... The bass player is her ex-husband, Ray Brown....

Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 05:52 Ella and Sammy Sing "'S Wonderful"--1964 mojo

Ella and Sammy on the Ed Sullivan Show, circa 1964. Sounds like a piece of a documentary. Look how thrilled Ed Sullivan is at the end of the performance. And ya gotta love Sammy just sitting there listening to her. Frank Sinatra...
