Ella at Zardi's at the Adelaide Fringe!

  • The Jade 142-160 Flinders Street Adelaide, SA, 5000 Australia (map)

It's 1956, and you're all dressed up about to step into Zardi's Jazzland to spend an evening listening to the incomparable Ella Fitzgerald sing live.

For two week's over the summer of '56, Ella headlined this famous Hollywood nightspot. On the final night they rolled the tape and caught the whole gig - a rare glimpse into what it was like to be in an intimate jazz club with arguably the most famous jazz singer of them all - joking, forgetting words, taking requests, talking to the audience. Then for 60 years the tapes lie hidden in the vault at Verve records.

Join acclaimed jazz vocalist Louise Messenger on her return from the UK, as along with her trio they recreate in it's entirety this magical lost Ella album. A night of swinging jazz not to be missed!
