Illustrated by Rémi Courgeon
Children's audio book about the life and music of Ella Fitzgerald
Follow Ella's rise from humble beginnings to become a queen of jazz, renowned for her remarkable scat improvisations, but also for her very personal interpretations of the Broadway classics and her live performances with Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong, among others. Each spread recounts a different stage of her life, and key moments are captured by evocative photos and by Rémi Courgeon's beautiful illustrations. On the accompanying CD, the narrative of the book is intewoven with 13 of the singer's most emblematic recordings.
