Ella Fitzgerald — How High the Moon

I once discovered an old vinyl record, coated in dust, residing in my parents collection. I put it on, it started spinning, and I sat on the floor right in front of the speaker. The first notes began to play, and Ella’s voice teleported me to a place I’d never been before.

It still has the same effect nowadays and as I listen I find myself drifting into that same indescribable place.

96 years ago today, The Queen of Jazz was born.
What an incredible voice she had!
