Ella Fitzgerald: Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie! LP (Verve Acoustic Sounds Series)

Ella Fitzgerald

Verve, 1961

In contrast to her classic Songbook albums for Verve, this 1961 date captures the essence of Ella Fitzgerald as most people got to see her live—with a swinging quartet. The program is made up mostly of repertoire from the Swing and early Bebop periods with Ella mixing soulful ballads and hard-driving swingers.
