Enjoy an evening celebrating jazz great Ella Fitzgerald featuring The Lovejoy Group. This concert draws from Fitzgerald’s 1958 recording, “Ella Swings Lightly,” which was arranged with power and swing by Marty Paich. The Lovejoy Group has reduced the size, kept the power, and amplified the swing to recreate Paich’s arrangements. They appear as part of East River Jazz, a Washington, D.C.- based jazz cultural preservation project. Free and open to the public.
