Tune In, Swing Out

At 6pm tonight, Jazz FM will be airing a special broadcast of Ella Fitzgerald’s concert, recorded twenty years ago on the 4th March 1990 at the Royal Albert Hall to mark the launch of the station. Joined by the Count Basie Orchestra, Ella was flown over by Jazz FM to make her last appearance in Europe before her death in 1996.

The broadcast coincides with the announcement that Jazz FM are to be the new media partners for the Royal Albert Hall’s Late Night Jazz series, with upcoming gigs from Ian Shaw, Alan Barnes, Christian Brewer and Tammy Weiss.
