Ella Fitzgerald Centennial Celebration Week 1

Ann Hampton Callaway — the “…superbly intelligent, singularly creative pop-jazz stylist who can stand shoulder to shoulder with Streisand, Ronstadt, Shirley Horn, and Dianne Reeves...” (JazzTimes) — returns to Birdland with an exciting show kicking off Ella Fitzgerald’s centennial year. Callaway explores the breadth of Ella Fitzgerald’s repertoire in a show titled “Ella Century” including fresh takes on classics such as, “How High the Moon,” “Mr. Paganini,” and “Every Time We Say Goodbye.” Ann is backed by her all-star jazz quartet with Matt Baker (piano), Dean Johnson (bass), Tim Horner (drums), and Benny Benack III (trumpet). “For sheer vocal beauty, no contemporary singer matches Ms. Callaway.” (New York Times)
