FABULOUS! we will never see the likes of these two again.
I was just thinking who would we have come and perform at any awards show now that would be 1/2 as fabulous or talented? Sadly I couldn't come up with anyone. Now it's all flash and marketing.......and no talent.
PS -and it looks like they were having FUN -as were the audience. No stifled yawns to be found.
I'm a lucky duck - I got to see both, albeit separately. It was late enough in Ella's voice that there was practically nothing left of her but the voice. But what a voice.
I saw Miss Fitzgerald perform in the early '80s, she was marvelous, of course. Around the same time, I also attended shows by Sarah Vaughan and Lena Horne. Those were fabulous evenings I will never forget!
Musical genius - and just so effortless... Jx
