Both Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan recorded Gershwin songbook albums in the late 1950s. The first hour of Voices in Jazz this week will feature recordings from both of these famous jazz singers.

Each will sing stunning versions of "Embraceable You" - and even Louis Armstrong gets to squeeze in a couple of duets with Ella. Also, a rebroadcast of an interview with Carolyn Nelson, a Philadelphia-area singer performing songs from her Come A Little Closer CD. Sunday, September 23rd, 3 to 6 pm on the all-jazz stream and WRTI HD-2.
