Ernestine Anderson grew up singing in the church in Houston where she developed her heartfelt gift for jazz and blues. When the family relocated to Seattle, where she still makes her home, Ms. Anderson sang with a variety of bands, forming lasting relationships with swing and jazz greats including Quincy Jones. She later shared the stage with Quincy as a member of Lionel Hampton's legendary band.
The artist profiles on these pages were excerpted from the Carnegie Hall Tribute program. We present them here in an effort to recognize the artists that keep the music of Lady Ella alive through their repertoire.
