An Ella Fitzgerald Centenary Celebration

If perfection had a name, it might be Ella Fitzgerald. Such virtuosity, balance, musicality... was just encountered once in jazz history. In 2017 the whole world will be celebrating the diva‘s centennial and Mezzo, during the anniversary month, will broadcast archive shootage, testimonies and documentaries to show the epitome of perfection.
