Wait for it…

Hi all. Sorry for the lack of new posts these last couple of weeks but I promise I’ll have something up soon.

Until then, enjoy this awesome live recording of  Ella Fitzgerald and the classy-as-always Duke performing this classic groove:

What I love about this recording is the straight rawness in performance. People are yelling up and down throughout the recording, having just a ball. Ella’s scatting all through the arrangement (…don’t think too hard about that, you dirty pervert), and she’s seemingly cracking up from what I assume to be Duke’s crazy ass outbursts. And everyone is just freaking into it, y’all!

Also, that hilariously wrong tempo clap around the beginning of the song: magic.
