Ella Fitzgerald: The Man I Love

Unlike some other jazz greats, there is a tremendous amount of great Ella Fitzgerald material on YouTube and other video sites. None are better than this beautiful version of The Man I Love, a standard by George and Ira Gershwin. Tommy Flanagan is the piano player. The band is great, but the star of course is Ella.

Also check out Fitzgerald’s early hit A-Tisket A-Tasket. TDMB site already has linked to her powerful version of Mack the Knife.

Two major contributors to Fitzgerald’s career are producer and impresario Norman Granz and drummer Chick Webb, who discovered her.

Here is Fitzgerald’s bio and a discography.
