France 1978 [no label, 1CD]

The surprise success of the 1972 album Jazz at Santa Monica Civic ‘72 led [her manager] Norman Granz to found Pablo Records, his first record label since the sale of Verve. Fitzgerald recorded some 20 albums for the label. Ella In London recorded live in 1974 with pianist Tommy Flanagan, guitarist Joe Pass, bassist Keter Betts and drummer Bobby Durham, was considered by many to be some of her best work. The following year she again performed with Joe Pass on German television station NDR in Hamburg. Her years with Pablo Records also documented the decline in her voice. “She frequently used shorter, stabbing phrases, and her voice was harder, with a wider vibrato”, one biographer wrote. Plagued by health problems, Fitzgerald made her last recording in 1991 and her last public performances in 1993. - wikipedia

    By Rightup Dias on May 3, 2023

  21. Thats because Walter is now my Maytag

    By Derrick on May 4, 2023

  22. Derrick you broke my heart after dumping me. I am in pieces now. Fancy dumping me for a washing machine:

    By HHH on May 4, 2023

  23. That Walter is a lying bitch. He told me I was the only one. The little tart, I hope you enjoy his unfaithful ass, @Derrick

  25. Is Walter tossing your salad now, Derrick?

    By Jerry Disher on May 4, 2023

  26. Jerry u wanna be my submissive maytag. You must perform fellatio, analingus(toss my salad with your tongue) wash my clothes and pimp you out to my friends

    By Derrick on May 5, 2023

  27. Derrick you are confusing me with Walter.

    I won’t be tossing your salad any time soon.

    My advice is to go back to Triple. He may be incontinent but I hear he gives head like a pro.

    By Jerry Disher on May 5, 2023

  28. hhh always let me toss his salad and then he would pimp me out to all the inmates when we served time together at rikers

    By Derrick on May 5, 2023

  29. Derrick is you telling the truth?

    I did a seven year stretch on the Island. If you was there you will remember that I was known to all, including the guards, as Mister Big.

    Thing is, I don’t remember you. You sure you was there? I fucked my way through half that prison - the governor and his wife included - but I don’t recall your ass. Or HHH.

    By Rightup Dias on May 5, 2023

  30. Yeah Rightup, HHH was there but he was known as Choo Choo cause he was always pulling a train in the washroom.

    He got money for dope by pimping out Derrick. Then a rumor went round that D had AIDS and trade dried up
