Friday Jukebox: Simple Perfection Edition
Ella Fitzgerald and Oscar Peterson, 1975.
I prefer the simple opening and closing sections of this number.
Yes, Ella can swing it, yes, Peterson is pure magic on the piano, yes, yes, but...Ella's voice is so perfectly clear and cool that I don't think she needs to swing this tune. On its own merits - and on her voice - it stands alone.
