Ella Wishes You A Swinging Christmas by Ella Fitzgerald (1960)

“It’d be hard to imagine a happier wish than the one this jazz vocal legend wishes her listeners on this urbane-yet-homey collection of holiday favorites. The First Lady of Song recorded these tunes in 1960, at the peak of her interpretive powers. As such, she puts her singular stamp on everything from a sultry vamp like “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve” to the sweet and cozy “The Christmas Song.” Even potentially shopworn standards like “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” sound fresher when they’re coming from Ella Fitzgerald.”
Let’s get in the holiday spirit by participating in One Voice’s Holiday Program, which provides families in need with fresh food, toys, and books for Christmas. It’s a 4-day event with different tasks each day. The Saturday portion involves delivering packaged goods to One Voice distribution centers around the city.
In order to participate in the Holiday Program, you must fill out this volunteer form and bring it with you on the day of the event.
