Ella Fitzgerald: Ella In Berlin - Mack The Knife - Live in West Berlin (LP)

(Universal) 9 tracks - Recorded live in West Berlin in 1963 with the Paul Smith Quartet - Re-issue of the original 1963 'MGM' LP

For several years I have been touring Jazz At The Philharmonic in Europe, and the concerts have always featured Ella Fitzgerald. I decided finally to record the opening concert of this season's tour in Berlin at the huge Deutschlandhallen, the largest hall in Berlin, holding almost 12,000 people. This album is the result of that recording and it substantiates an opinion that I have long held: jazz fans are the same all over the world. One can hear the same reactions here of the German audience to Ella's tour de force in much the same fashion that one hears American audiences on Jazz At The Philharmonic albums with Ella recorded in America.

As you can tell, the title of the album comes from the song of the some name. This was the first time Ella sang "Mack the Knife,' and not knowing the lyrics too well she substituted her own, for what may well have been an improvement on the original. Ella is accompanied on this album by Paul Smith, piano; Jim Hall, guitar; Wilfred Middlebrooks, bass; Gus Johnson, drums. - Norman Granz

"Ella Fitzgerald"

Geboren am 25. 4.1918

Die unumstritten größte Jazzsängerin der Welt, Ella Fitzgerald, trat vor nunmehr 41 Jahren erstmals an die Öffentlichkeit. lm Gründungsjahr des New Yorker „Apollo Theatre' debutierte das schüchterne Waisenkind bei einem Nachwuchswettbewerb. Dort hatte sie Benny Carter gehört, der von Ella beeindruckt war, und sie an Orchesterchef Fletcher Henderson empfahl. Henderson lehnte Ella Fitzgerald jedoch mit der Begründung ab, er könne an dem Mädchen nichts finden. Carter jedoch gab nicht auf. Er vermittelte Ella Fitzgerald an den Schlagzeuger und Bandleader Chick Webb, der sie nach einer ersten Ablehnung schließlich doch in seine Swing-Band aufnahm. Das war der Start zu einer beispiellosen Karriere, deren Ende auch heute, nach 41 Jahren, noch nicht abzusehen ist.

Die Künstlerin, die überall in der Welt gesungen und mit nahezu allen Jazzmusikergrößen zusammen gearbeitet hat, gilt weltweit als Botschafterin des Friedens und der Menschlichkeit. Ein schweres Augenleiden zwang Ella Fitzgerald kurzfristig zum Abtritt von der Bühne. Mittlerweile aber ist die Künstlerin - zwar noch immer nicht geheilt - in die Konzertsäle der Welt zurückgekehrt.
