Ella Fitzgerald Tribute Night w/Adelina Martinez

"The First Lady of Song," Ella Fitzgerald was one of the most popular female jazz singer in the United States for more than half a century. In her lifetime, Ella won 13 Grammy awards, selling over 40 million albums. With a flexible, wide-ranging, accurate and ageless voice she could pull off sultry ballads, sweet jazz and imitate every instrument in an orchestra!

Adelina Martinez leads the Savoy Swingers in a scat-singing and hip-swinging tribute to the First Lady of Song. Early-jazz favourites Goody Goody and A Tisket A Tasket will celebrate youth and vitality before 'Cry Me A River' and 'Blue Skies' show off the masterful phrasing, scat-soloing and story-telling ability Ella Fitzgerald developed in later life. Her collaboration with Louis Armstrong will be portrayed by guest artist Matthew Copley (trumpet/vocals) in Cheek to Cheek and Stars Fell on Alabama…and many more! Humour, celebration and heart-warming anecdotes about Ella's life will underscore a swingin' programme at the Doo Bop Jazz Bar on the 15th of December 2018....
