    Information

    Description

    Ella Jane Fitzgerald

    Ella is the most celebrated of divas, and she dominated the jazz scene for over fifty years, from her first hit A-Tisket, A-Tasket in 1938 to her gradual retirement from the stage in 1989 due to illness. She left her signature on every jazz universe to which she contributed. The Essential Works 1956-1959 throw light on her talents as a performer of the greatest standards, with songs written by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin and Rodgers & Hart. Ella succeeded in making popular melodies her own, most often songs taken from musicals that she transformed into as many pearls of vocal jazz. The four sides of this album bring together the indispensable inner soul of Ella Fitzgerald's recorded work.

    The Essential Works

    The history of music shows us that different kinds and forms follow each other. And that the latest trend overshadows the one that came before it. Today it's difficult to say exactly which trend dominates, as there are so many music currents that overlap and intersect. Mainstream exists no longer. Yet one thing is certain: each music form is built on the music that precedes it. There would be no jazz without classical music, no rock without blues, no rock without jazz, no rap without soul music, no sampling without the riffs of either soul or rock… and therefore, inside each genre you find different chapters in the history of music. And that is why it is so important to understand their origins: they shed the light that is necessary for an understanding of the music born every day.
    The richness of jazz lies at the origin of so much music today that it is essential to discover this creative wealth. The Essential Works of Masters of Jazz bring to light those 20th century creations that still exert an influence on the majority of musicians today — whether they are aware of it or not.

    The Essential Works of Masters of Jazz gather the fundamental creations of the music of today.

    L’histoire de la musique révèle que les musiques se succèdent les unes les autres. La dernière tendance éclipse l’avant dernière tendance. Difficile aujourd’hui de dire la tendance dominante, tant les courants se chevauchent et s’entrecroisent. Il n’y a plus de mainstream. Une chose est certaine, chaque musique se construit sur les musiques qui l’ont précédée. Pas de jazz sans la musique classique, pas de jazz sans le blues, pas de rock sans le blues, pas de rock sans le jazz, pas de rap sans la soul, pas de sampling sans les riffs de soul ou de rock … alors dans chacune des musiques, on retrouve les étapes de l’histoire de la musique. C’est pourquoi il est si important de connaître les origines, elles donnent l’éclairage nécessaire à comprendre les musiques qui naissent quotidiennement.
    La richesse du jazz est à l’origine de tant de musiques d’aujourd’hui qu’il est essentiel de découvrir cette richesse de création.
