Ella and her trio

I can't retire this evening without posting a litle jazz. This is a sort of tribute to Rab and Co., a community of jazzheads that is a head and shoulders above most of the stuff you run across out there. it is incredible the amount of music and discussion of jazz i have found there. Probably the other most significant site that prompted me to start this.

So here we have Ella Fitzgerald in a rare organ trio setting. Please don't blame me for to version of I'm Walkin'. It actually kinda swings near the end but is ultimately pointless and may turn people off of what is truly a fun record.

recorded 6/19-20/78
