Ella Swings Lightly featuring The Lovejoy Group

This concert highlights one of Ella’ Fitzgerald’s finest recording accomplishments. “Ella Swings lightly” was a flawlessly arranged recording by Marty Paich and his Dek-tette, a ten piece ensemble that had the power of a big band with the agility of a small combo with flexibility to swing and improvise. Here Ella was at her best, melodic vocals with room to move. This album won Ella a 1960 Grammy award.
It is with this spirit that we have assembled the finest musicians to give you a taste of Ella’s best!
The album features a selection of jazz standards from the era. Featuring favorites like “Little White Lies” with a surprise or two thrown in. Vocalist Karen Lovejoy delivers these standards with a plumb, swinging all the way. Great vocals and sexy horn lines!
The concert is free. So spend that savings on brunch while you listen!
