Ella would have been 96 today.

Below is a video of her singing "Summertime". My favorite song.
Look at the clothes, and the cars. Brings back memories.
Happy Birthday, Ella.

I had a chance to see her live once, with Louis Armstrong - what a concert that was!
Happy Birthday, Ella!

Oh, you lucky duck. I would have loved to see them together, live.
I saw Louis Armstrong, live, at the 1952 Olympics in Oslo, Norway, and he was great.
The two of them together is a real treat. I have this one down loaded to my computer.
See the link below.

Ella Fitzgerald and Thelonious Monk at the small NCO Club, 2nd US Army, which turned from a short official appearance in a long night impromptu session.
