Ella Fitzgerald is probably the most beloved jazz singer of all time, with hits like Manhattan, Summertime, Bewitched and Lady is a Tramp

Amassing 13 Grammy Awards and 40 million albums sales over an astounding 60-year career, Ella could effortlessly cross over between sultry ballads, intricate jazz arrangements and light pop tunes, and could imitate any instrument of the orchestra. Born in 1917, Ella worked with all the greats including Ellington, Basie, Sinatra, Gillespie, Armstrong (or perhaps we should say they worked with her!) and she packed out venues worldwide during her career, including Dublin’s Adelphi Theatre in 1964 and the Cork Jazz Festival in 1982. Her greatest legacy is probably the Songbook Series, recorded between 1956 and 1981, considered a cornerstone of 20th century recorded popular music, representing some of the finest interpretations of the greater part of the musical canon known as the Great American Songbook.

Stella Bass and The Johnny Taylor Trio celebrate that incredible 60-year career of The First Lady of Song, performing a specially-curated selection of their own Ella favourites!
