A few days ago I’ve listened to an Ella concert with guitarist Joe Pass again, she never ceases to impress me.
I post Ella a lot here. She has long been a favorite of mine.
Miss Ella was a one of a kind vocalist and scat singer. I love her album with Mel Torme. Two wonderful singers who have left us a wonderful legacy.
I also love her album with Louis Armstrong. It is the perfect combination of two amazing instruments: her voice and his music.
Yes, another great duo. Who doesn’t love Pops and Ella.
I just hope that the younger generations are exposed to this amazing music.
Although Jazz is not widely popular among young people, there are several universities that have music programs that offer big band jazz such as the University of North Texas in Denton.
Even high schools have jazz bands. Mine had an ensemble which played often.
