Wow! That's Ella at her best. What a great clip. I didn't know it existed. And how could I love anything more than "That Old Black Magic?" I was in Italy in 1965. There were some great small Jazz clubs. I can relate.

Funny how I like to listen to Keith Jarrett, but I can stand looking at him.

Jazz was, perhaps is more respected in Europe than in the U.S....Most civilized, Utah.

What, does Keith have a face for radio?
