Looking forward to another great ‘Friday night is Music night’ where we celebrate Ella’s phenomenal career, from her earliest recordings with Chick Webb, through her meeting with the great Norman Granz recording the ‘Songbook’ series (with the likes of Nelson Riddle and Billy May, Paul Weston, Buddy Bregman and Duke Ellington) onto her work with Louis Armstrong and Oscar Peterson.
