ADD TO WISHLIST


Recorded in concert at the Chautauqua Institute in Western New York on July 11, 1968 this release finds the “First Lady of Song” at her best. This is a master class in entertainment. Fitzgerald takes the audience on a whirlwind tour of her career and then points to new vistas she will conquer. She brings life to the songbooks of classic writers such as Porter, Ellington and Mercer. There is no singer in Fitzgerald’s league when she moves from up tempo to ballad to Bossa Nova. Her heartfelt and humorous interactions with the audience are met with thunderous applause. Backed by the fabulous Tee Carson Trio with Keter Betts and Joe Harris, the group had a tight knit rapport and fed off of each other joyously.

Chick Webb & Ella Fitzgerald

Too easily and too often, music of the swing era is disregarded as being "for dancers." Chick and Ella made sure it was for listeners as well. But what's more, Chick's decision to take his unheard-of power, and his orchestra's great musicianship, and lay it all at the feet of a masterful vocalist, made sure his music would be for the ages.

----------------------------------------------- <

Duke Ellington

Ellington entered the '30s having perfected his method of using the group to experiment with arranging and orchestrating. He relied on ideas from his musicians, and wrote for them as individuals rather than as anonymous section players. With all that work and a line-up of marvelous, distinctive musical voices, Ellington began the most creative period of his life.

-----------------------------------------------

Charlie Parker

“Fellow pilgrims, the quest for the legendary Dean Benedetti collection has ended. Presented on these 7 CDs, this collection is not for dilettantes. To those, however, who understand and appreciate Parker as a genius, I can unreservedly recommend it.” – Ira Gitler, Jazz Times

-----------------------------------------------

Eddie Condon & Bud Freeman

Harder, faster, more focused on personality and soloing than ensembles, the music attracted others who enjoyed palling around and blowing free. This is jazz that seemed naturally born in smoky back rooms and saloons. And you were always guaranteed a fine time.

Stan Getz

Chronologically, these sessions for Norman Granz fell just after the quintet dates with Raney, before Getz had risen to the dizzying heights of extreme popularity and when he was still basking in the glow of his stint as part of Woody Herman’s Four Brothers saxophone section.
