dc ♥ ella fitzgerald
In honor of Ella Fitzgerald's 100th birthday, dc1968 remembers Ms. Fitzgerald. The photograph above was taken in 1968, place unknown. (I'm able to use the photo via creative commons courtesy of the Fraser MacPherson estate c/o Guy MacPherson.
Ms. Fitzgerald performed here in 1968 at the Carter Barron Amphitheater from 15-21 July. (Also on the bill were Herbie Mann & his quintet and Charlie Byrd.)
Did you attend one of the concerts? Did you take photos? Record or film it? Still have your ticket stubs?
