In this celebration of her vocal heroine, Joanna Eden and the Chris Ingham Trio explore Ella Fitzgerald’s repertoire, from the throw-away A Tisket A Tasket to timeless classics by Gershwin, Porter, Ellington and many more.
Joanna grew up with Ella on the record player thanks to her jazz bass-playing father. She describes Ella’s voice as ‘a warm, familiar hug from my childhood… it’s like Ella was one of the family’. Joanna Eden’s ability to combine jazz vocal dexterity with heartfelt emotion and great storytelling gives her the skills to pay a fitting tribute to the legendary artist.
