"Possessed with a smooth, honey-colored voice and intonation as flawless as Ella Fitzgerald's."

Patrice Williamson Celebrating Ella

It's no wonder that Patrice Williamson has been compared to Ella Fitzgerald, because since hearing Fitzgerald sing "A Tisket A Tasket" (about that now famous yellow basket), she's been a lifelong devotee.

Williamson has performed her "Celebrating Ella" concert to sold out crowds for years, including a spectacular CD release show on Fitzgerald's 100th Birthday on April 25th 2017, right here at the Regattabar. In celebration to Fitzgerald's enduring legacy as a jazz vocalist, Williamson partnered up with guitarist Jon Wheatley to record and release a beautiful recording highlighting Fitzgerald's work with Joe Pass. Williamson will return on April (24 or 25) with more of Ella Fitzgerald's hits and fan favorites.
