BlackRadioIsBack Flashback Videos of the Day: Ella Fitzgerald, Mahalia Jackson & Dinah Shore
I was up late on night watching PBS after working a night shift a few years back (yes, my life can be a thrill a minute at times) and they had this special on about Dinah Shore.
Being a popular culture history geek and there being nothing on my cable system around 1 in the morning, I decided to watch until sleep took over.
One of the things I thought was pretty cool was the fact she had a lot of Black Music talent on her show (especially at that time frame) and that one of the people she admired and was sweating HARD was jazz singer and legend (even then) Ella Fitzgerald.
Some good person on Youtube liked the jazzy duet action they did on the show like me, so I wanted to share it with y'all.
Harmonizing is a part of a good duet...take notes, especially since this was before Pro Tools, Multi-Tracking, 21st Century Studio Magic, etc.
