How High The Moon and It Might As Well Be Spring
Subscribe to Jazz on the Tube
A very rare performance from 1958
Ella Fitzgerald, the First Lady of Song, was at the peak of his powers at the time that she appeared on a Milton Berle television special in 1958.
On “How High The Moon,” after the first chorus, Ella and a backup band double the tempo and she scats up a storm.
A second performance, a warm rendition of “It Might As Well Be Spring,” displays Ella’s ballad artistry.
