Live In Paris 1957-1962

Ella Fitzgerald - Live In Paris 1957-1962

This triple album set contains a series of concerts recorded at the Paris Olympia between 1957 and 1962 by one of the greatest voices of the 20th century. Under the wing of distin guis hed manager/producer Norman Granz, Ella Fitzgerald was then at the peak of her artistic career after recording the Songbook series of titles by George Gershwin (with Louis Armstrong), Cole Porter and Harold Arlen. It was also her outstanding concert-period, and her version of “Mack the Knife” in 1960 in Berlin was one of her biggest hits. In a state of grace, Ella sings jazz for an audience literally transported by the First Lady of Song. Patrick FREMEAUX The Live in Paris collection by Michel BrilliE allows listeners to hear previously-unreleased recordings (made at concerts and private- or radio-sessions) by the great 20th stars in jazz, rock & roll and song. These “live” takes, and the artists’ rapport with their audiences, gives these performances an additional soul and sensibility in counterpoint to the rigorous demands of studio recordings. Particular care was taken when restoring the sound of these tapes in order to meet CD standards while preserving the original colours of the period. Patrick FREMEAUX & Gilles PETARD
