This illustrated biography of Ella Fitzgerald tells the life of the queen of jazz, and gives an introduction to her music

Follow Ella’s rise to become a queen of jazz, renowned for her remarkable scat improvisations, but also for her very personal interpretations of the Broadway classics and her live performances with Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong, among others. Each spread recounts a different stage of her life, and key moments are captured by evocative photos from the time and by Rémi Courgeon’s beautiful illustrations. The narrative of the book is recorded on the accompanying CD, as well as 13 of the singer’s most emblematic recordings.
