Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Shore & Joan Sutherland trio!

Thu Nov 08, 2012 6:09 pm

Sadly all we have on youtube of the Dinah Shore show that saw these three huge stars performing together is a couple of very short clips, one of which is audio only. It's an unlikely trio, but it's amazing how well Sutherland's operatic voice blends with the jazzier tones of Shore and Fitzgerald. From what we have available to us it appears the trio traded styles during a medley of sorts - so Ella and Dinah find themselves singing Three Little Maids from The Mikado, with Sutherland singing the swinging Lover Come Back To Me. Let's hope the full sequence appears some day.
