Jazz At Santa Monica Civic '72


Jazz at Santa Monica '72 is a 1972 (see 1972 in music) live album by the American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald, accompanied by a jazz trio led by the pianist Tommy Flanagan, and the Count Basie Orchestra.

This concert was initially sold through mail order by the jazz producer and impresario, Norman Granz, as a three-LP set. The phenomenal success of the album led to Granz founding Pablo Records, his first record label since Verve Records, which he later sold to MGM.

The concert was originally intended to feature only the Count Basie Orchestra and Ella Fitzgerald, but Granz invited some surprise "guests", the trumpeters Roy Eldridge and Harry "Sweets" Edison, the tenor saxophonists, Stan Getz and Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, and the pianist Oscar Peterson and bassist Ray Brown.

Famous quotes containing the words civic, jazz and/or santa:

    It is hereby earnestly proposed that the USA would be much better off if that big, sprawling, incoherent, shapeless, slobbering civic idiot in the family of American communities, the City of Los Angeles, could be declared incompetent and placed in charge of a guardian like any individual mental defective.
    Westbrook Pegler (1894–1969)

    The basic difference between classical music and jazz is that in the former the music is always greater than its performance—Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, for instance, is always greater than its performance—whereas the way jazz is performed is always more important than what is being performed.
    André Previn (b. 1929)

    On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe.
    Johnny Mercer (1909–1976)
