Cultural Streaming Series – Ella Fitzgerald – palais Des Beaux- Arts in Brussels 1957

In 1957 Ella was at the peak of her career, a forty-year-old black woman with the world on a string. Her band-mates included the likes of bassist Ray Brown (to whom she was married until 1953), the incomparable Oscar Peterson, the slick Herb Ellis, the metronomic Jo Jones, Roy Eldridge and more. It is about as stellar line-up as possible, and Ella moves from down-tempo masterpieces like “Angel Eyes” to timeless classics like “It Don’t Mean A Thing.” A glimpse of pioneering vocal brilliance and enough charisma to fill twenty stages. Screening of recorded concert. 45 min. Free and Open to Public
