Considered a favorite among composers and lyricists: ”whatever she does to my songs, she always makes them sound better,”-Richard Rogers. Fitzgerald’s dream of being a dancer was suddenly thwarted when, competing at an Apollo Theatre talent contest, she made her unexpected debut as a singer instead. Caressing the lyric, honoring the melody and then making it all new again through unparalleled improvisation earned her the title “First Lady of Song.” This tribute selects from a catalog of hundreds of recorded songs to commemorate her life and music with “Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me,” “I’m Beginning To See The Light,” “Lush Life,” “Just A-Sittin’ and A-Rockin’,” “Azure,” and “A Tisket, A Tasket.”
