Man, they were really jamming, holding nothing back, lol, I had a big grin on my face by the end of it.

..It seemed some of their best work was in Europe.

You've got me hooked on Ella now, I just knew her name before, that shows how ignorant I am...


Ella in Italy 1960 - Tenderly

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbcF96qMC2o

Ella in Berlin 1968 - For once in my life:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dl4z_QHlnmk

Ella sings "Desafinado" Sweden 1963

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPUNoKAz68

Ella sings "Cry Me a River" with Joe Pass 1975 German TV (I love this song!)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHVMxBkW0CQ

Ella doing Mack the Knife, what a lovely woman and singer.

One as a musician can really learn a great deal about making music from watching Ella; even non singers can learn from watching what she does with a song.Ella had so much musicality it whenever she treated a wonderful song her way, it's like one cannot see Ella doing anything ordinary. Music and Ella are two words that seem to naturally go together.

---------------
NOW If you loved Ella you may also love this gal froma more recent era.

Well this gal singer is a good one... Eva Cassidy. This gal grew up listening to Ella and Billie Holiday. Unfortunately she died at 32 of Skin Cancer; but had a chart topper in the UK with her Songbird Album (bird themes tonight?).

A Blues Alley Live Concert (this tune is CHEEK TO CHEEK) with a really nice piano solo in it played on a Steinway Grand. Sorry I don't know who the pianist is but he looked like he was really having fun.

Check it out:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRxfOYFVjP4

youtube has a video of the nightline piece about this singer; I think if Ella had heard she would have liked her too.

That will never be another Ella; but this girl has some Ella like qualities in the way she treats songs like "Over The Rainbow" and "Cheek To Cheek".

*Warning one fellow choir member I played Evas CD went and bought all of Eva's CDS the next day!

I glad you are hooked now on to Ella; she is my biggest inspiration as a singer. Vocalists can learn from instrumentalists and vice versa. Ella once said something like; almost everything good she has done she had stolen from the horns. She is one of the best when it comes to scat singing; and when she does those fast tempo scats you'd swear that'd be some trumpet part.

If I were exiled to some deserted island--- and could only have one thing as a luxury item; I'd take all of Ella's complete body of work.I never get tired of listening to Ella's singing.

I think I found the name of Eva Cassidy's pianist on the Cheek to Cheek video... Lenny Williams. Night Line Show about Eva Cassidy (3rd part of 3 segments; they (ABC-Nightline) did a whole show on her one Friday night).

Wolf, thanks so much for this musical education (I think now I studied all the wrong things in college), wow! Heavenly, and yet another song on my to do list...

Eva singing the piece I'm working on, autumn leaves (devastating):

Here's one of my favorite Ella songs.
The recording on the Verve album The Best of Ella Love Songs Album is even better; but it is nice to see her singing the song.

Ella on:

I'm Beginning to See The Light
Dianah Shore TV Show/ Lucille Ball

I was trying to remember who was the person working on Autumn Leaves... there is a really pretty piano solo in the middle of that.

I have the book... I had to order it from the UK.
I heard there is a wonderful CD with the backup tracks tom all the songbird songs (karaoke type)--- I'd love to have that cd and plug it into my PA and sing along to it.

Have you also noticed how well Eva plays fingerstyle guitar? We lost her at too young an age; such musicality in her.

Be sure to check out the nightline videos on Eva (3 parts at youtube). Bluenote really missed the boat by not signing her when she wanted to not just stick to one genre.

Isn't this fun? Youtube is like Christmas... so many musical gems there to find and listen to.

I continue to really enjoy this thread.

My wife is out of town for a couple of weeks, and I needed something to occupy my time, so I tripped back down to the antique mall and ... voila!

I picked up the following:

Stomping at the Savoy, by Benny Goodman.

The End ("... at the end of a rainbow, there is a pot of gold . . .") (1950s Sam Cooke type item)

I'll be Around (Mills Brothers hit, 1950s)

Song of India, Rimsky-Korsikoff (classic, I know)

----------------

Since I graduated from High School in 1959, "The End" and "I'll Be Around" were both played at all the HS dances, and were Top 10. So naturally I warmed up to them.

"Stomping at the Savoy" is going to be great fun. I'm already toying with it. This piano solo is about 5 pages of music -- price $1.00. In good shape, too.

The pricing on this old sheet music is weird. The dealer says he checks a reference price-listing book. Some wonderful stuff is very cheap, while some weird old stuff no one ever heard of is as much as $8 for two (facing) pages of music.

Some of this looks a little hard, like the Benny Goodman, but when I play it, it lays down under my hands real nice. Not a problem. I think those composer/songwriters worked a lot with the piano, and they wrote scores that are sensitive to a pianist's fingers.

Any comments?

You are going to be busy.
Some great finds! Stomping At The Savoy is wicked... hope you are able to send a recording when you feel it is ready for the world.

The library of congress has many resources. One archive is at http://www.loc.gov/rr/perform/

But you can also go to the main page loc.gov, and put "sheet music" in the search box to find other collections.

Hopefully this link you sent wont be as addictive as the youtube one.... I am hooked and need (but don't want an intervention for this new addiction of mine).

I admit... I might have a problem

Isn't that sort of the first step....
Now I'm going to have to check that archive out.

Thnx for sending it.

Yes; you are now in the throes of an addiction (or maybe you have multiple addictions like I now do). Don't fight it... enjoy the ride.

Go Ella!

Nat King Coles recording of Tenderly is at this link. The person who posted the video added this note : " In this clip we see the last tune of Nat King Cole's 1957 TV show featuring Oscar Peterson and Jazz at the Philharmonic.
Nat introduces the tune about like this:
It's not only a privilage to sing with the Oscar Peterson Trio, this is also the finest piano treatment of Tenderly.
Not bad, when an announcemt like that comes from Net King Cole. The Orchestra of Nelson Riddle is the studio band, a wonderful Cole vocal and then Oscar swings a chorus."

Music doesn't get any better than this...

I compared this version to the one link otf Tenderly posted earlier which was sung by Ella... I do have to say I think Ella did it better. Her version to me seemed more tenderly, I like the slower tempo and the less busy piano playing on it.

I bet somewhere on the web there would be a video clip to see it.

Now; I'm gonna check out the Louis Armstrong clips above.

BTW I found some great Duke Ellington clips there; many with Ella together with him.
The youtube search engine is most helpful... just plug in a name of any artist or song... and away you go. A great resource for those of us into popular songs from 30-40s.

See you all later... gotta get another youtube fix. LOL [/b]

Must tell a story of seeing a Paladium show in London in the year dot ... 2/6 bought a seat way up in the gods ... the first three acts were stunning ... then came the main course with a stage set for drums, double base and honkey-tonk piano ... a brief pause and in sauntered a thin
American chappie dressed in a white tuxedo ... came up front and suggested that some of the audience might like to stay on ... ‘cus me
and the boys are a gonna slap a few tunes around’ ... I had paid my money
and thought I’d stick around ... what an experience!

Didn’t take long before the drummer started tish-tishing and the double base syncopated a rhythmic beat ... and then the thin guy lounging at the old Johanna started tinkling the ivories ... which gave way to the spare gravel-voiced Southerner transfixing the audience with his singing of ‘Georgia On my Mind’ ... that home-spun drawl in that nostalgic caress of Georgia still brings a tear to the eye ...

‘Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through,
Just and old sweet song keeps GEORGIA ON MY MIND

It was of course the one and only Hoagy Carmichael. We wouldn’t let him go and so got to hear amongst others

The Nearness of You
Little Red Monkey
Lazybones
Skylark
Up A Lazy River
Small Fry

and of course the show-closing blockbuster “Star Dust”. ‘Sometimes I wonder why I spend the lonely night ... Dreaming of a song?’

Thanks for the fondest of memories guys ... there are not many of the Tin Pan Alleys songs not on my shelf ... aren’t we fortunate to have lived through an era when they really knew how to write a good song.

OMG! You got see Hoagy Carmichal perform.
He has written some wonderful songs music.

I have never heard "Small Fry" or "Little Red Monkey"... I wonder if youtube has something ....

Oh look at me as here I go again.... I sense I will be taking another trip on over to youtube LOL

Skylark is one of those songs that I melt when I hear it sung and played well. I love to sing it and play along. Lovely ballad. I think I have at least one recording of Ella doing it.

Really injoying reading this post and especially listening to wonderful film clips of Ella singing all those wonderful songs. I don't play much classical, but mostly all of the standards. I have a drum machine hooked up to an amp, so when I play a song like foggy day or Satin Doll, it really makes the song swing and makes it easy to play in time. Henry Mancini composed some good jazz songs like Mr Lucky from Peter Gun. Has anyone on this post played a song called Invitation by Bronislau Kaper?, it has some really great sounding chords in it and I like to play it with the rumba beat on the drum machine. After listening to Ella, I hear my Pramberger JP208 calling me to play!

Thanks for sharing this link; I am going to put it in my bookmarks. I have the centennial songbook of his with all his songs and autobiography and pictures; but I haven't had time to really sit down with it.

This website you sent the link to is wonderful. I found this already.

I love riding Merry Go Rounds and even though I am still all grown up I ride them still.

Thanks for the link. Fun!

If you like that kind of music you should go to www.newbonbon.com and follow links to music you like or go to www.atos.org and click on "Recording Sampler" to hear some theatre organ arrangements by famous artists of the songs you list.

When it comes to standards I personally prefer hearing them on theatre organ and have learned organ as a result because it gives me (IMHO) more flexibility. [/b]
