Reissue of Ella Fitzgerald's 1969 album of funky big-band cover versions, conducted by and featuring Tommy Flanagan on piano

Ella Fitzgerald singing Eric Clapton's "Sunshine of Your Love", or the Beatles' "Hey Jude"? Something of a revelation for those who know Fitzgerald as purely a jazz singer. Ella's pristine clarity of earlier years, now tinged with a throaty worldliness, is a perfect foil to her choices from the world of rock and pop. It also adds new depth to such standards as "Give Me the Simple Life", "Old Devil Moon", and Burt Bachrach's "A House is Not a Home".

Recorded "live", the album is divided into a big band set and Ella with her longtime accompaniment, the Tommy Flanagan trio. Pianist Flanagan is simply one of the all-time greats. After listening to this, how can you not be a fan of Ella's? Includes the original liner notes from Norman Granz, who produced this record.

CD Tracks: Hey Jude / Sunshine Of Your Love / This Girl's In Love With You / Watch What Happens / Alright, Okay, You Win / Useless Landscape / Old Devil Moon / Don'cha Go 'Way Mad / A House Is Not A Home / Trouble Is A Man / Love You Madly / Give Me The Simple Life
