Ella Fitzgerald* – Love is here to stay

I was somewhat surprised that I hadn’t posted Ella Fitzgerald yet so this is as good a time as any to right that wrong. Her voice is one of the all time classics.

The reason I choose this Gershwin classic is that it was sung at the wedding I was at a few weeks ago in Oxford and I actually found myself to be a little moved by it. For someone as stoic as me that is really saying something!

The horns here are so smooth and languid, the way they complement Ella’s voice is a real treat. I find the combination to be totally irresistible.
