Cry Me a River
Ella Fitzgerald & Joe Pass
Ella Fitzgerald is accompanied by guitarist Joe Pass for a performance of “Cry Me a River” at this 1975 concert in Hanover. The two recorded their first duet album in 1973.
Songwriter Arthur Hamilton wrote the song for Fitzgerald to sing in a film nearly twenty years prior to this performance. Although the song was dropped from the movie, Fitzgerald and a number of other jazz musicians adopted the song in their repertoire.
