    I absolutely love Ella. That voice is like liquid chocolate, so smooth and delicious. I wish I could sing like that. Love Nina too, this being my favourite one of hers.

    The only modern singer to match them would be Aretha Franklin. My uncle did the sound for a series of her concerts in the US and told me she is pitch perfect so it was very easy to get the sound just right.

    She was on one of those Diva show on TV a couple of years back with the likes of Whitney Houston and Maria Carey and knocked the socks off them. Nothing to match her even now.

    Is this Ellington’s loveliest tune?

    I heard her sing this, and many others, in a night club in Frisco in ’66.

    I must have found something attractive in this, but I can’t for the life of me think what it was.
