Jazz requires participation, it is the art of DOING! Here is an excerpt from Jazz Houston's "Who Is Ella Fitzgerald" education concert at Westbury High School (Houston). It features two of our young scat singers, taking a turn scatting part of Illinois Jacquet's solo on "Flying Home" which Ella recorded in 1945!

Here is an excerpt from our "Who Is Ella Fitzgerald" education concert at Westbury High School (Houston), from the beginning of the show where Ella teaches us "Just don't ever give up trying to do what you really want to do!"
