Byron Stripling and Carmen Bradford’s chemistry lights up the stage for a journey through the most famous duets and solos recorded by two of jazz’s greatest legends, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. From “Love Is Here to Stay” and “What a Wonderful World” to highlights from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, they recreate one of the most memorable collaborations in music history in celebration of Ella’s 100th birthday.
