Ella Fitzgerald

|
Web oficial de la cantante


Estados Unidos
1917 - 1996




Entre 1956 y 1964 la maravillosa cantante realizó una serie de 'Song Books' de grandes compositores de canciones para el cine como;


  • Cole Porter
  • Jerome Kern
  • George Gershwin
  • Richard Rodgers
  • Harold Arlen
  • Johnny Mercer
  • Irving Berlin


Esto nos ha permitido disfrutar de las maravillosas melodías del cine de las primeras décadas y recordar la espectacular voz que tenía la cantante.

Nota importante; Las fechas de las canciones pueden no coincidir con las de las películas en las que se interpretan. Hay que recordar que entonces era muy normal que una canción se estrenara en un musical y este se llevara más tarde al cine. El cine 'sonoro' permitió disfrutar de muchos musicales y canciones que se habían realizado en los teatros más importantes.
