Mack the Knife, Louis Armstrong
Sacrilege.

One of the definitive recordings . . .

Ella Fitzgerald is far superior to that woman, and Armstrong is even better than Fitzgerald.
You just named two of the worst interrupters of music who ever lived.
You are quite clearly mentally damaged.
Obviously, but this is no sign of it. The bottom line is that people who gush over Armstrong and Ella have near to no idea of the music they are performing.

Get hip to Weil and if you possible Porter and you tell me this is anything but tripe.

Porter's work has been so influenced by the ridiculous performances by Ella, it's hard to even find a decent recording.

Oh, but we can imagine.

So wait Louis Armstrong is no good? He was one of the greatest artists of the 20th century and Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man is the greatest 50 dollars I ever spent.
