If you had been away for a few decades, on the moon perhaps, and had never heard of Ella Fitzgerald, you'd want to turn to this recording for a demonstration of the artistic power that has made her an icon of modern music. This is one of Ella's classic performances, captured before an appreciative French audience on a night in 1971 when all elements of her remarkable gift were in perfect alignment. Her control was absolute, even in the riskiest spur-of-the-moment interval leaps. She took outrageous chances with phrasing, yet managed to enhance the meaning of lyrics. Her swing was enough to make you get up and dance, her tenderness enough to make you cry, her earthiness to make you laugh. When Bing Crosby said, "Man, woman or child, Ella is the greatest," he might have just heard this record.

with Tommy Flanagan, Frank de la Rosa, Ed Thigpen
