Ella 100: Live At The Apollo

Sep 14, 2020

This live performance recorded for Concord Jazz at  Harlem's legendary Apollo Theatre is the perfect setting to commemorate the 100th Birthday of the one and only Ella Fitzgerald. It's an All Star cast hosted by David Allan Grier and features: Patti Austin, Ledisi, The Count Basie Orchestra, Lizz Wright and so many more.

If you love Ella then this is the record for you. The songs are performed with the same class and swing Ella brought to her recordings and live performances. In an era where live performances are rarely captured this makes for "must hear radio".  So tune into The Sunday Jazz Suite with Debb Moore (11a-4p) or stream WCLK HD2 at WCLK.com to hear Ella At 100-Live At The Apollo and other Jazz greats.

David C. Linton is Jazz 91.9 WCLK Program Director and host of Serenade To The City, heard Monday-Friday at 10pm.
