Sunday Jazz – Ella Fitzgerald


Having featured Ella Washington on yesterday’s Saturday Soul I thought it only fair (any excuse) to feature the great Ella Fitzgerald today.

Whilst the web is still relatively short on information relating to the former, there is little that can’t be gleemed from the web regarding the latter.

There is little to say about this Ella that hasn’t been said before, to me she was simply the greatest female vocalist ever.

“Angel Eyes” is one of my all time top 10 favourite songs, here it is in it’s full studio glory”

“Angel Eyes” – Ella Fitzgerald

Try to think that love’s not around
But it’s uncomfortably near
My old heart ain’t gaining no ground
Because my angel eyes ain’t here

Angel eyes, that old devil sent
They glow unbearably bright
Need I say that my love’s mispent
Mispent with angel eyes tonight

So drink up all you people
Order anything you see
Have fun you happy people
The laughs and the jokes are on me

Pardon me but I got to run
The fact’s uncommonly clear
Got to find who’s now number one
And why my angel eyes ain’t here
Oh, where is my angel eyes

Excuse me while I disappear
Angel eyes, angel eyes.
