Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Ella Fitzgerald Sings "Round Midnight"

We recently heard the Modern Jazz Quartet's instrumental performance of Thelonious Monk's jazz standard "Round Midnight." Now let's listen to a vocal rendition as only Ella Fitzgerald, the "First Lady of Song," could do it. The above is from a 1961 performance in England, with accompaniment by Oscar Peterson, piano; Ray Brown, bass, and Ed Thigpen, drums.
