Happy Birthday Ella

Google has a nice doodle for what would have been Ella Fitzgerald’s 96th birthday. No matter what your musical tastes, if you do not own any music by Ella, you are missing out. My 10 year old can tell you that she is my favorite singer ever and always will be.

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned that her Christmas Album is the best Christmas album ever. Any of her stuff with Louis Armstrong is great. Twelve Nights in Hollywood is a brilliant two CD set of live performances (she’s especially good live). Oh seriously, you can’t go wrong with any of her stuff.

Just listen and enjoy…
