Ella in Berlin is a 1960 live album by the American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald. This album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999, which is a special Grammy award established in 1973 to honor recordings that are at least twenty-five years old, and that have "qualitative or historical significance. One of Fitzgerald's most acclaimed live performances, at this concert in Berlin, Fitzgerald improvised lyrics for "Mack the Knife" after forgetting the original lyrics.

Ella Fitzgerald was at the peak of her form during her 1960 tour of Europe. Her Berlin concert is most remembered for her hilariously inventive version of "Mack the Knife," during which she forgot the words and substituted ones of her own that somehow fit, amazing herself in the process. With fine support from her quartet - pianist Paul Smith, guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Wilfred Middlebrooks, drummer Gus Johnson - Fitzgerald is brilliant throughout the well-rounded set, with highlights including "Misty" (a version very different from Sarah.

Recorded February 13, 1960 live at Deutschlandhalle, West Berlin, Germany with The Paul Smith Quartet. Winner of 2 Grammy Awards in 1960. Matrix, Runout (Side A ): MGVS 6163A 30340.

Ella Fitzgerald with The Paul Smith Quartet. Set track as current obsession. Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 – June 15, 1996) was an American jazz vocalist with a vocal range spanning three octaves (D♭3 to D♭6). Often referred to as the "First Lady of Song" and the "Queen of Jazz," she was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing and intonation, and a "horn-like" improvisational ability, particularly in. her scat singing. Fitzgerald was a notable interpreter of the Great American Songbook

Ella Fitzgerald, née le 25 avril 1917 à Newport News et morte le 15 juin 1996 à Beverly Hills, est une chanteuse de jazz américaine. D'abord connue sous le surnom de The First Lady of Swing , qui est devenue The First Lady of Song après l'apogée du Swing (littéralement La Première Dame de la chanson , mais traduit plus volontiers par La Grande Dame du Jazz ), elle a remporté de nombreuses récompenses, dont 13 Grammy Awards. Cette version de Mack the Knife est certainement l'un des succès les plus connus d'Ella Fitzgerald, avec "Mr Paganini" et "How High the Moon". Une autre de ses improvisations fameuses eut lieu au cours d'un concert à Antibes, Juan-les-Pins à l'été 1964, alors qu'elle se produisait dans la Pinède Gould à l'occasion du Festival Jazz à Juan, quand elle rendit hommage aux cigales qui y chantaient ("The Cricket Song").

Album · 1960 · 9 Songs. Fitzgerald was well into her stint on Verve in 1960, so it stands to reason that Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, and the Gershwins-the focal points of her albums with producer Norman Granz-loomed large here. But while the songbooks boasted meticulous polish, Mack the Knife showed that Ella could still summon the visceral crackle of small-group jazz. Revisiting How High the Moon, her signature showpiece since the ’40s, she dials the tempo up to impossible.
