  • Honoring Ella Fitzgerald's 100th Birthday

    Just read this from the LA Times:

    "On the occasion of what would have been Ella Fitzgerald’s 100th birthday, the Grammy Museum and many other institutions will look back at her incomparable legacy in American music. The Grammy Museum has announced a new exhibition, “Ella at 100: Celebrating the Artistry of Ella Fitzgerald,” due to open on her centennial, April 25. The exhibit will host an archive of personal correspondence, rare recordings, stage attire and other pieces from her estate. It’s one of many national projects showcasing the life and achievements of Fitzgerald — the first African American Grammy winner — in 2017. The Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C., will host “First Lady of Song: Ella Fitzgerald at 100,” focusing on her personal scores, sheet music and videos of her live performances from her archives at the Library of Congress. Also, the Great American Songbook Foundation will present an exhibition highlighting her landmark Verve albums from 1956 to 1964. Fitzgerald was one of the most influential singers in the history of American jazz and popular music, and the range and depth of these exhibitions speak to her lasting impact on American song."
