ELLA WISHES YOU A “HAPPY NEW YEAR”
This time Ella asks: “What’s your plan for the New Year’s Eve?”
Editor: Ali Tufan Koç

Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Gwen Stefani and even Justin Bieber, Britney Spears… Wrapped in a New Year’s Eve or Christmas pack, becoming the background voice of the celebration nights is the red gift bow of the “international reputation” gift package for musicians of any era. There is no doubt that you will make people smile and turn the air into a warmer atmosphere as long as you carry that gift bow. Yet there is a name who not only managed to go beyond turning into a new year’s eve ornament or decoration, but also recorded the album just as she did with her other albums, by not seeing the record only as a “red bow” in her career: Ella Fitzgerald.

Ella’s Christmas timbre and her New Year’s Eve songs are just like a perfectly-adjusted soft light in a celebratory dinner. It sparks you as it gently fulfills the ambiance. The classics are the classics you know. Ella is just the Ella you know. The combination has a bit of swing and some jazz; just as a new year miracle that should be there in a New Year’s Eve.
