When the Montreux Jazz Festival was at its peak as a showcase for the cream of talent among jazz artists, one of its summit events was always the presentation of Ella Fitzgerald. No matter what had gone before--and it inevitably included some of the finest players on earth--the crowd knew they were in for something special when she walked onto the stage. Ella's ability to create excitement while meticulously observing high standards of taste and musicality is legendary, and she brought her gifts to Montreux audiences eager to receive them. At the 1975 festival, remembered by Montreux aficionados as one of the best, she surpassed expectations. Accompanied by the masterful pianist Tommy Flanagan, with Keter Betts and Bobby Durham on bass and drums, Ella builds in force and assurance through one of her most memorable concert recordings.

with Tommy Flanagan, Keter Betts, Bobby Durham
