An Angel Sings: Ella Fitzgerald's Live at Zardi's

Kirk Silsbee, Verve Records, Spring 2018

"Zardi's spares absolutely no expense to bring you the greatest. As I mentioned before, for two-and-a-half weeks, now, it's been my pleasure to make this little announcement because it's one of the few announcements I can honestly make. This is for real; for me she's the greatest there is — Miss Ella Fitzgerald!" (Norman Granz)

Total word count of piece: 1638
