Synopsis

Album Description
So many words have been written about Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong (1900-71), perhaps more than about any other jazz musician and international entertainer, for he was both those things. In fact, in the late 50s and early 60s he was considered to be the world's most well known person! What WAS the secret of his long-lasting success, and how can one explain his genius that for nearly half a century spelled a special kind of magic to not only the jazz aficionado, but to the general public as Vlell? His talent transcended both language and social barriers, and his huge grin, gravel-toned voice and golden trumpet playing was loved by millions. With her different songbook albums, recorded over a period of years and each one devoted to a particular composer, Ella's superb singing set new standards, and a special kind of respectability was conferred on the American Popular Song. Again, like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald's appeal is universal, for she is loved. as much by the non-jazz public as the serious jazz buff. Multiwaves. 2006.
