Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Rodgers and Hart Songbook (1956)

Summer journeys to Niag’ra
and to other places aggra-
vate all our cares.
We’ll save our fares!

I’ve a cozy little flat in
what is known as old Manhattan
we’ll settle down
right here in town!

We’ll have Manhattan
the Bronx and Staten
Island too.
It’s lovely going through
the zoo!

It’s very fancy
on old Delancy
street you know.
The subway charms us so
when balmy breezes blow
to and fro.

And tell me what street
compares with Mott Street
in July?
Sweet pushcarts gently gli-ding by.

The great big city’s a wonderous toy
just made for a girl and boy.
We’ll turn Manhattan
into an isle of joy!

We’ll go to Yonkers
Where true love conquers
In the whiles
And starve together dear, in Chiles

We’ll go to Coney
And eat baloney on a roll
In Central Park we’ll stroll
Where our first kiss we stole
Soul to soul

And “My Fair Lady” is a terrific show they say
We both may see it close, some day

The city’s glamour can never spoil
The dreams of a boy and goil
We’ll turn Manhattan
into an isle of joy!

Ella Fitzgerald: Anything Goes (Porter, 1934) - Lyrics Now In Video

This 1956 recording features Ella singing “Anything Goes,” written in 1934 by Cole Porter for his musical by the same name. Since its 1934 debut at the Neil Simon Theatre (at the time known as the Alvin) on Broadway, the musical has been revived several times in the United States and Britain and has been filmed twice.

Ella is accompanied by the Buddy Bregman Orchestra,

Times have changed,
And we’ve often rewound the clock,
Since the Puritans got a shock,
When they landed on Plymouth Rock.
If today,
Any shock they should try to stem,
‘Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock,
Plymouth Rock would land on them.

In olden days a glimpse of stockings
Was looked on as something shocking,
Now, heaven knows,
Anything Goes.

Good authors too who once knew better words,
Now only use four letter words
Writing prose,
Anything goes.

The world has gone mad today
And good’s bad today,
And black’s white today,
And day’s night today,
When most guys today
That women prize today
Are just silly gigolos

So though I’m not a great romancer
I know that I’m bound to answer
When you propose,
Anything goes

The world has gone mad today
And good’s bad today,
And black’s white today,
And day’s night today,
When most guys today
That women prize today
Are just silly gigolos

So though I’m not a great romancer
I know that I’m bound to answer
When you propose,
Anything goes…
Anything goes!

Cole Albert Porter foi um músico e compositor estadunidense de Peru, Indiana. Seu trabalho inclui as comédias musicais Kiss Me, Kate (1948 – baseado na peça de Shakespeare The Taming of the Shrew), Fifty Million Frenchmen e Anything Goes. Também as músicas “Night and Day”, “I Get a Kick Out of You” e “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”. Ele é notório pelas letras sofisticadas (às vezes vulgar), ritmos inteligentes e formas complexas. Ele é um dos maiores contribuidores do Great American Songbook.

W październiku 1938 udał się na przejażdżkę konną. Koń przestraszył się czegoś i przewrócił się w pędzie miażdżąc obie nogi kompozytora i pozostawiając w chronicznym bólu do końca życia. Lekarze powiedzieli Lindzie, która zdecydowała się wrócić i opiekować mężem, że jego prawa noga powinna być amputowana, ale ta nie wyraziła zgody. Porter przeszedł więc ponad 30 operacji,a ciągły ból i bezsenność doprowadziły go do stanów głębokiej depresji. Nie stracił jednak humoru, ani chęci pracy. Opowiadał, że leżąc na trawie po upadku, i czekając na pomoc napisał jedną ze swych najbardziej romantycznych piosenek At Long Last Love. Pomimo bólu i choroby, już w rok po wypadku można było podziwiać kolejny musical Portera, “Leave it to me” z uroczą Mary Martin i skandalizującym ” My heart belongs to Daddy”. Jednak sukcesy następnych czterech musicali nie uchroniły go od krytyki. Jego twórczość okrzyknięto “mniej magiczną”. Po dwóch kolejnych klapach, wielu uznało go za skończonego.
——————————————-
Кол Портер – американский композитор, один из немногих авторов Tin Pan Alley, писавший наряду с музыкой и тексты к собственным песням. Портер прославился музыкальными комедиями: Kiss Me, Kate (1948) (по «Укрощению строптивой» Шекспира), Fifty Million Frenchmen, DuBarry Was a Lady , Anything Goes, а также песнями: «Night and Day», «I Get a Kick out of You», «Ive Got You Under My Skin», «Begin the Beguine» (в русском переводе — «Начало танца») и др. Критики отмечали изощрённое поэтическое мастерство Портера (с оригинальными рифмами и двусмысленной игрой слов), а также необычную для жанра сложность его композиций. В числе фильмов, музыку к которым написал Портер, — «Born to Dance» (1936), «Rosalie» (1937), «Youll Never Get Rich» (1941), «Stage Fright» (1950).

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.

Learning by listening is a great way to:
– increases imagination and understanding
– improves your listening skills
– improves your own spoken accent
– learn while on the move
– reduce eye strain

Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping!

SUMMARY
=======
Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 – June 15, 1996) was an American jazz singer sometimes referred to as the First Lady of Song, Queen of Jazz, and Lady Ella. She was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing, intonation, and a “horn-like” improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing.
After a tumultuous adolescence, Fitzgerald found stability in musical success with the Chick Webb Orchestra, performing across the country but most often associated with the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem. Fitzgerald’s rendition of the nursery rhyme “A-Tisket, A-Tasket” helped boost both her and Webb to national fame. After taking over the band when Webb died, Fitzgerald left it behind in 1942 to start her solo career.
Her manager was Moe Gale, co-founder of the Savoy, until she turned the rest of her career over to Norman Granz, who founded Verve Records to produce new records by Fitzgerald. With Verve she recorded some of her more widely noted works, particularly her interpretations of the Great American Songbook.
While Fitzgerald appeared in movies and as a guest on popular television shows in the second half of the twentieth century, her musical collaborations with Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and The Ink Spots were some of her most notable acts outside of her solo career. These partnerships produced some of her best-known songs such as “Dream a Little Dream of Me”, “Cheek to Cheek”, “Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall”, and “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)”.
In 1993, she ended her nearly 60-year career with her last public performance. Three years later, she died at the age of 79 after years of declining health. Her accolades included fourteen Grammy Awards, the National Medal of Arts, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

With a vocal range spanning three octaves, she was noted for her purity of tone, phrasing and intonation, and a “horn-like” improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing. She is widely considered to have been one of the supreme interpreters of the Great American Songbook.

Ella Jane Fitzgerald (Newport News, 25 de abril de 1917 – Beverly Hills, 15 de junio de 1996), conocida como Ella Fitzgerald y apodada Lady Ella y The First Lady of Song (La primera dama de la canción), fue una cantante estadounidense de jazz. No obstante esta condición básica de jazzista, el repertorio musical de Ella Fitzgerald es amplísimo e incluye swing, blues, bossa nova, samba, gospel, calypso, canciones navideñas, pop, etc.
Junto con Billie Holiday y Sarah Vaughan, está considerada como la cantante más importante e influyente de la historia del jazz (y, en general, de la canción melódica popular). Estaba dotada de una voz con un rango vocal de tres octavas, destacando su clara y precisa vocalización y su capacidad de improvisación, sobre todo en el scat, técnica que desarrolló en los años cuarenta y que anunció el surgimiento del bop. En los años cincuenta sentó cátedra con su concepción de la canción melódica, en paralelo a la obra de Frank Sinatra, con sus versiones de los temas de los grandes compositores de la canción popular estadounidense (los songbooks de Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer, etc.).

Ella Fitzgerald… la joya de 17 años que canta en el Harlem Savoy Ballroom con la estupenda orquesta de Chick Webb con su gran aptitud natural para el canto… una de la mejores… no hay razón para pensar que no llegue a ser la mejor dentro de un tiempo». En 1937, la mitad de los temas de la banda contaban ya con la voz de Ella. Grabó una serie de éxitos con ellos, incluyendo If You Can´t Sing It, You´ll Have to Swing It, pero no fue hasta la grabación de su versión de la nana A Tisket A Tasket en 1938 cuando alcanzó directamente el estrellato.

Durante esta etapa, Fitzgerald era esencialmente una cantante de pop y swing que daba lo mejor de sí en las baladas. Tenía ya una hermosa voz, pero ni improvisaba ni practicaba todavía el scat. Efectuó numerosas grabaciones con Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Duke Ellington y en solitario.
Cuando Chick Webb falleció en 1939, la banda continuó su gira bajo el nuevo nombre de, “Ella Fitzgerald and Her Famous Orchestra”. Unos años más tarde, agotada del esfuerzo que suponía dirigir la orquesta y cantar a diario, disolvió la formación.

Comenzó su carrera en solitario en 1941. Cantó con the Ink Spots, Louis Jordan y The Delta Rhythm, y en 1946 empezó a cantar con regularidad en los conciertos de Norman Granz Jazz at the Philharmonic (JAP), convirtiéndose Granz en su manager. Un gran cambio se produjo en el estilo de Ella durante este período. Estuvo de gira con la banda de Dizzy Gillespie y adoptó el bebop como parte de su estilo, y comenzó a incluir fragmentos de scat en sus interpretaciones. Sus grabaciones de “Lady Be Good”, “How High the Moon” y “Flying Home” durante 1945-1947 se hicieron muy populares y su estatura como una de las primeras voces del jazz se asentó.
Tras aparecer en la película de 1955 Pete Kelly´s Blues, Ella firmó por fin con el sello Verve de Norman Granz y durante varios años grabaría los famosos Song Books de los grandes compositores estadounidenses de música popular: Cole Porter, los Gershwins, Rodgers & Hart, Duke Ellington, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern y Johnny Mercer.
. En sus últimos años, Fitzgerald volvió con Granz para formar parte de su nueva compañía, Pablo. Su colaboración comenzó con un gran concierto en 1972, el Santa Monica Civic concert, y siguió a lo largo de toda la década con discos orientados plenamente al jazz, cantando con Count Basie, Federico Parra, Oscar Peterson y Joe Pass, entre otros.

Ya ciega a consecuencia de la diabetes que padecía, en 1993 perdía sus piernas, y un tiempo después fallecía en Beverly Hills, California. De ella, su compañero y amigo Duke Ellington dijo “Ella Fitzgerald está más allá de cualquier categoría”. Sus restos se encuentran en el Cementerio Inglewood Park de Los Ángeles, California.

Ella Fitzgerald – It’s Only A Paper Moon (Verve Records 1960)

Ella Fitzgerald - It's Only A Paper Moon (Verve Records 1960)



Views:105806|Rating:4.89|View Time:3:39Minutes|Likes:615|Dislikes:14
“It’s Only a Paper Moon” is a popular song written by Harold Arlen and published in 1933, with lyrics by E. Y. Harburg and Billy Rose. It was written originally for an unsuccessful Broadway play called The Great Magoo, set in Coney Island. It was subsequently used in the movie Take a Chance, in 1933, and Paul Whiteman recorded a successful version, sung by Peggy Healey. But its lasting fame stems from recordings by popular artists during the last years of World War II, when versions by Ella Fitzgerald and the Nat King Cole Trio became popular. It has endured as a vehicle for improvisation by many jazz musicians.

There was a resurgence of interest in the song when the Paul Whiteman Orchestra’s recording was used in the 1973 Oscar-winning film Paper Moon.

Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Harold Arlen Songbook is a 1961 (see 1961 in music) album by the American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald, with a studio orchestra conducted and arranged by Billy May. This album marked the only time that Fitzgerald worked with May.

The Harold Arlen Songbook is the sixth album in Fitzgerald’s series of recordings of songs written by the pantheon of Broadway composers who formed the body of work now considered the Great American Songbook.

Ella’s accompanied by Don Fagerquist (tp), Ted Nash (as), Plas Johnson (ts), Paul Smith (p), John Collins, Al Hendrickson (g), Joe Mondragon (b), Alvin Stoller (d), and Billy May (cnd, arr). Recorded August 1, 1960, Capitol Records, Los Angeles. (Verve Records)

Say, its only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me

Yes, it’s only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It’s a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It’s a melody played in a penny arcade

It’s a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me

Say, its only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me

Yes, it’s only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It’s a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It’s a melody played in a penny arcade

It’s a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me
But it wouldn’t be make-believe, believe
If you believed in me

“Isn’t It Romantic?” is a popular song and part of the Great American Songbook. The music was composed by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Lorenz Hart. It has a 32-bar chorus in ABAC form. Alec Wilder, in his book American Popular Song: The Great Innovators 1900-1950, calls it “a perfect song”. It was introduced by Jeanette MacDonald and Maurice Chevalier in the Paramount film Love Me Tonight (1932). It has since been recorded numerous times, with and without vocals, by many jazz and popular artists. It has also since been featured in a number of movies.

Ella’s accompanied by Ray Linn (tp), Vincent DeRosa (frh), Chuck Gentry (bs, bcl), Bob Cooper (eh), Jule Kinzler (fl), Abe Most (cl), Arnold Koblentz (ob), Paul Smith (p, arr), Barney Kessel (g), Joe Mondragon (b), Alvin Stoller (d), and Buddy Bregman (cnd). Recorded August 31, 1956, Capitol Studios, Hollywood. (Verve Records)

Isn’t it romantic?
Music in the night, a dream that can be heard.

Isn’t it romantic?
Moving shadows write the oldest magic word.
I hear the breezes playing in the trees above
While all the world is saying you were meant for love.

Isn’t it romantic
Merely to be young on such a night as this?

Isn’t it romantic?
Every note that’s sung is like a lover’s kiss.

Sweet symbols in the moonlight,
Do you mean that I will fall in love perchance?
Isn’t it romance?

Sweet symbols in the moonlight,
Do you mean that I will fall in love perchance?
Isn’t it romantic?
Isn’t it romance?

Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 – June 15, 1996) was an American jazz singer often referred to as the First Lady of Song, Queen of Jazz and Lady Ella. She was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing and intonation, and a “horn-like” improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing.
After tumultuous teenage years, Fitzgerald found stability in musical success with the Chick Webb Orchestra, performing across the country, but most often associated with the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem. Fitzgerald’s rendition of the nursery rhyme “A-Tisket, A-Tasket” helped boost both her and Webb to national fame. Taking over the band after Webb died, Fitzgerald left it behind in 1942 to start a solo career that would last effectively the rest of her life.
Signed with manager and Savoy co-founder Moe Gale from early in her career, she eventually gave managerial control for her performance and recording career to Norman Granz, who built up the label Verve Records based in part on Fitzgerald’s vocal abilities. With Verve she recorded some of her more widely noted works, particularly her interpretation of the Great American Songbook.
While Fitzgerald appeared in movies and as a guest on popular television shows in the second half of the twentieth century, her musical collaborations with Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and The Ink Spots were some of her most notable acts outside of her solo career. These partnerships produced recognizable songs like “Dream a Little Dream of Me”, “Cheek to Cheek”, “Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall”, and “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)”. In 1993, Fitzgerald capped off her sixty-year career with her last public performance. Three years later, she died at the age of 79, following years of decline in her health. After her passing, Fitzgerald’s influence lived on through her fourteen Grammy Awards, National Medal of Arts, Presidential Medal of Freedom, and tributes in the form of stamps, music festivals, and theater namesakes.
FROM WIKIPEDIA:
Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971),[1] nicknamed Satchmo[2] or Pops, was an American trumpeter, composer, singer and occasional actor who was one of the most influential figures in jazz. His career spanned five decades, from the 1920s to the 1960s, and different eras in jazz.[3]
Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an “inventive” trumpet and cornet player, Armstrong was a foundational influence in jazz, shifting the focus of the music from collective improvisation to solo performance.[4] With his instantly recognizable gravelly voice, Armstrong was also an influential singer, demonstrating great dexterity as an improviser, bending the lyrics and melody of a song for expressive purposes. He was also skilled at scat singing.
Renowned for his charismatic stage presence and voice almost as much as for his trumpet-playing, Armstrong’s influence extends well beyond jazz music, and by the end of his career in the 1960s, he was widely regarded as a profound influence on popular music in general. Armstrong was one of the first truly popular African-American entertainers to “cross over”, whose skin color was secondary to his music in an America that was extremely racially divided. He rarely publicly politicized his race, often to the dismay of fellow African-Americans, but took a well-publicized stand for desegregation in the Little Rock Crisis. His artistry and personality allowed him socially acceptable access to the upper echelons of American society which were highly restricted for black men of his era.
FROM WIKIPEDIA:
Ella and Louis is a 1956 studio album by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, accompanied by the Oscar Peterson Quartet. Having previously collaborated in the late 1940s for the Decca label, this was the first of three albums that Fitzgerald and Armstrong were to record together for Verve Records, later followed by 1957’s Ella and Louis Again and 1959’s Porgy and Bess.
