Discography

Did you know that Ella assigned all her royalties to the Charitable Foundation that bears her name? YES!! Every time you legally purchase one of Ella’s recordings – a song, a CD – the royalty from that purchase heads this way so that we can continue Ella’s charitable legacy. So please, please, please GET YOUR MUSIC LEGALLY!

Now for the fun stuff – the music. We need to remember that music companies change things constantly. We’ve got a partial list of Ella’s recordings below, but if you are lucky enough to live near a real record/music store, just go and browse. And don’t forget to visit our ALBUM OF THE MONTH PAGE.

If you’re shopping online, Amazon.com and iTunes have great selections. So does Barnes & Noble and CD Universe. Pandora & Spotify are terrific as well.

Enjoy the music.
