    12. Marcellus Sinclair

      I actually first heard this rendition on NPR several years ago. I was driving at the time and literally pulled into a parking lot to "swing" along w/ Ella. You have to move your head and legs when you hear this. Ella is just magnificent!!!!!

    13. knittedpainting

      Ella and that bass 👌🖤

    14. the rat queen

    18. Momus God of mockery

      she ain't wrong ya know!

    19. Ashley Smith

      My god! So happy to have found this version of the song again....absolutely in my top 3 all time favorites. So thankful for my grandparents that played big band and jazz on the record player all day/everyday.....I can listen to this song all day on repeat !!!

    20. Lyonel Laverde

      One of my favorite live recordings of all time. It's a cross-section of all Ella's gifts in a single song. She is very much in her singing prime. Her controlled lyricism is both elegant and touching. Her timbre is always exceptional; like the greatest of singers, she doesn't sound like anyone else but herself. And the topper is her scatting. The scat here is no filler, but a bridge to greater lyrical expression. It takes the song to another level, anchored in jazz tradition, and yet aware of the popular sounds of her day (Her brief sampling of "A Hard Day's Night" is charming.). She is at the point in her career where she can bend the song into anything she wants, and she chooses to make it into a vehicle for joy and the vibrancy of life itself. A blessing of a song!

    21. D . A . S

      I want to go to a live jazz place or sum and just have a blast. Wearing my best clothes. Maybe even perform!!

    22. Lukáš Churý

      come dance the Lindy with me, guys

    23. Send Kite

    27. Gentza Ballesteros

      This is a total masterpiece, Ella genuinely enjoying the stage, a genius scatting, the musicians pushing their trompets to it's limits and producing awesome high pitches. I would enjoy dancing at this with low lights

    28. Timothy Issler

      Ella and the gang: *singing* Some due in the back: *laughing like that one uncle at every family barbecue*

    29. Tom Burroughes

    45. Valencia

      809 people gave this a thumbs down; they must be rapper babies who wouldn't know real music if it ran them over. Go Ella!

    46. Crossword131

    55. MX P

      The 718 people who gave this a thumbs down must not have listened to the song.

    59. Thalma de Freitas

      Did anyone else notice how 707 distracted people pressed the dislike button by mistake?

    60. Mackerel

      A few years ago I discovered the beauty of Jazz and Swing, I am currently 16 and still enjoying the wonderful genres. It is a shame that not alot of people from today's generation appreciate older music. I was around 9-10 when I discovered this beautiful genre. ^^

      1. star night

        Our generation appreciating this music is great & all, i just want actual dancing back! i wanna go to a school gymnasium, kick my shoes off grab the nearest boy & just swing!

      2. Dana Ü

        U peasants, I am a fetus and I know more about music than you

      3. Mackerel

        I discovered it around the age of 9, and yeah the genre is very beautiful!

      4. Ion_ Know

        I got into electro swing when i was like around 11 and now I’m 14 listening to blues and swing the genre is just beautiful yk

    61. Jeff Barnaby

      I get to listening to music from this era and just wish i could go back in time and enjoy them in person. Laughter is infectious this session I'm guessing was just a blast.

    62. The V

    63. Charles Burnham

      Throughout her entire life she was haunted by a pervading sense of low self-worth. From singing with Chick Webb at 16 to her failing years, she found it hard to understand why she was so loved and was convinced of her own unworthiness of being loved for who she was.

    64. Furisca Fynn

      Everyone is just laughing and clapping... Just wow. It's so wonderful

    65. Charles Williams

      Hard time finding the origin of this song. Best guess is Cliff Edwards of Disney fame.

    66. Sheila Aries

      Ella went off on this one. True classic

    67. Jourwalis -

      Super! Ella is the Queen of Jazz!

    79. Alan Appel

      Ain't she great. Saw her give one of her final concerts at Carnegie Hall. Diabetes had taken its toll and she performed from a chair.

    80. Wailing Woman Of Yisrael

      Beautiful. Love when artist sung as the instruments..epic

      1. Gentza Ballesteros

        Epic is the word 🤩

      2. Wailing Woman Of Yisrael

        @aquatic life lol😂, I get what you're saying but I lrather stick to my "literal" terms 🤷🏽‍♀️💁🏾‍♀️🥰

      3. aquatic life

        Artist? Girl that's Ella! The Queen of Jazz. I get what you're saying but artist is an understatement.

    81. Youichi Minagawa

      Omg, all along I thought this song was an instrumental track because I have a big band jazz album with mostly instrumentals (e.g Sing, Sing, Sing, In The Mood) and this song was in it so I assumed it was also instrumental. Didn't know the original had vocals, so I discovered something good today! :)

    82. Daily Hit of Music

      We love this recording! That's why we’ve featured it in our blog today on Ella Fitzgerald: Blog: Instagram: Facebook:

    83. Keyrian

      I wish I could saw her in person, but I'm more thankful I discovered her through the sound of her beautiful voice

    84. Wesley Fonvergne

      Ella Fitzgerald was the kind of talent we won't see for a long time. She was one of a kind.

      1. aquatic life

        We won't see ever. They only made one of those. Enjoy these moments.

    87. Eleonore Hamery

      Is it me or is Ray Charles crashing her gig? (I hear "not now Ray", but I'm not an english native speaker, and I'm not sure of what I heard XD)

      1. Mark Howell

        Ray Nance of the Duke Ellington Orchestra

    88. B C

      That was recorded in 1966. Her joyfulness did hide her sorrow as that was the year her sister passed away. She seemed to give all of hers in the show. This is Professionalism.

    89. Jamie Stewart

      Every city/ town/ community needs a cannabis cafe/ coffee shop that has events on and weekend nights with the homeless guy on the trumpet and his pal on the harmonica with the nerd who randomly knows how to play the piano doing that, I can feel the vibe already

      1. Speccy Boo
