Ella Fitzgerald – Ella at the Shrine (yellow vinyl)


Verve Records, celebrating Ella Fitzgerald’s 100th birthday in 2017, released at the end of that year Ella at Zardi’s – a vibrant, previously unreleased album recorded during a two-week stint at the Hollywood nightclub. Captured February 2, 1956, all signs pointed to the album as the label’s, and Ella’s, first live recording. Incredibly, it was discovered that Verve founder Norman Granz had also recorded Ella at Los Angeles, California’s Shrine Auditorium the week before. It’s a thrilling but brief set because, as Granz announces, Ella “has to get back to Zardi’s.” The newly discovered 20-minute live JATP recording is presented for the first time here on 45 RPM 12″ vinyl!

This is the limited edition RSD Black Friday 2018 release in yellow vinyl.
