Ella Fitzgerald (vcl), Joe Pass (g)
Bar code: 8436028692972
A previously unreleased radio broadcast, made in Germany, featuring duet performances by Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass, with new and carefully remastered sound quality. It includes their only known duet versions of 'Feelings', 'Them There Eyes', 'Perdido' and 'Little Girl Blue'.
The wonderful Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996) and guitar magician Joe Pass (1929-1994) first crossed paths while recording the duo album Take Love Easy in 1973. There was something magical about her collaborations with Pass, and the two would continue to work together (embarking on many tours and recording three more albums) until the mid-80s, when Ellas poor health forced her retirement. Paradoxically, Joe would pass away two years before Ella. He died from liver cancer at the age of 65.
