Hello, Good Evening! Today, Caetano reminds us another important day, the passing of “The First Lady of Song”, the greatest female Jazz singer of all times, the Queen of Jazz, the legendary Ella Fitzgerald, eleven years ago. Loronix small celebration is based on the most Brazilian album among hundreds recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, her tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim, Ella Embraces Jobim with The Queen delivering Jobim Song Book, just as she did before to the renowned cast of composers from the last Century.

This is Ella Fitzgerald – Ela Abraca Jobim | Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Antonio Carlos Jobim Songbook (1980), for Pablo. This album is of a great importance to Brazilian music, Ella Fitzgerald and Norman Ganz — Fitzgerald producer for decades — made this songbook as just as they did the previous ones, leveling Antonio Carlos Jobim to the same plateau given to (in order of Ella Songbooks release) Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hart, Duke Ellington, Irvin Berlin, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern and Johnny Mercer.

I’m making a break to announce that Caetano’s posts are about to start. Phone call was made and now we have finally reached a conclusion, amazing to Loronixers.

The break today is a video. I think it is everything we need to relax. Ella Fritzgerald, in Brazil, 1971, selling energy, dancing and making me feel really convinced she is one of the greatest divas. Ella Fritzgerald performs The Girl from Ipananema and a Bossa Nova medley at the end.

I think you will enjoy this a lot. Thanks the YouTube users betofs for letting people share.

Hope uEnjoy!
