And now for a pause from our usual programming: Joe Pass and Ella Fitzgerald

Oh! It’s Ella Fitzgerald’s birthday!

This is one of the finest of her performances I’ve ever located: Ella singing “You turned the tables on me” with Joe Pass accompanying.

You can start it at the very beginning and you’ll find about 20 minutes of the amazing Joe Pass playing six songs alone.
