Weiss Family Jazz Series Swingadelic Presents Ella Fitzgerald (Snow date May 20)

Swingadelic presents 'The Life and Music of Ella Fitzgerald.' Ella was an American jazz singer sometimes referred to as the First Lady of Song, Queen of Jazz, and Lady Ella. She was noted for her purity of tone, intonation and a 'horn-like improvisational ability,' particularly in her scat singing.

Known for possessing a remarkable three-octave range, Fitzgerald became the first African American woman to win a Grammy Award in 1958.

Partnerships with Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and The Ink Spots produced some of her most notable acts outside of her solo career. These partnerships produced some of her best-known songs such as 'Dream a Little Dream of Me,' 'Cheek to Cheek,' 'Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall,' and 'It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got that Swing').

Swingadelic gave such a super performance the last time we invited them to the library that we had to have them back! Come hear John Bauer on piano and vocals; David Longworth, drums; Dave Post, bass; and Vanessa Perea, vocalist. Make sure you sign up for this special evening to get a seat!
