Ella Fitzgerald: Sunshine Of Your Love
In her extraordinary career, the "First Lady of Song" collaborated with key figures in big band jazz, won a total of 13 Grammys, and was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 1987. On "Sunshine of Your Love," her enthusiasm for pop that emerged in the '60s manifests itself. The album offers an impressive musical color spectrum with compositions by John Lennon, Eric Clapton and Antônio Carlos Jobim on the one hand and big band classics like "Give Me the Simple Life" and "Old Devil Moon" on the other. Rousingly interpreted by the Ernie Heckscher Big Band and the Tommy Flanagan Trio and produced by Verve founder Norman Granz.
