Twelve Nights In Hollywood is a 2009 live album by the American jazz vocalist Ella Fitzgerald, recorded at the Crescendo Club in Hollywood, Los Angeles over ten nights in May 1961, and a subsequent pair of performances in June 1962. In 1961 Fitzgerald released an album of her live performances at the Crescendo, Ella in Hollywood, this album repeats none of those tracks, or the subsequent two singles that resulted from her 1962 stay, "Ol' Man Mose" and "Bill Bailey".
Ella in Rome and Twelve Nights in Hollywood display her vocal jazz canon. Ella in Berlin is still one of her best-selling albums; it includes a Grammy-winning performance of "Mack the Knife" in which she forgets the lyrics but improvises magnificently to compensate. Her goals were to give back and provide opportunities for those "at risk" and less fortunate. Callaway's album To Ella with Love (1996) features fourteen jazz standards made popular by Fitzgerald, and the album also features the trumpeter Wynton Marsalis.
Ella Fitzgerald needs no introduction to most jazz fans because the "First Lady of Swing" had a remarkably productive recording and performing career that spanned from the mid '30s until around 1990, when multiple health problems forced her into retirement. Ella was 44 in 1961, recording several albums a year for Verve and managed by impresario Norman Granz, who was very interested in seeing that the singer earned a hefty income from concert bookings and record royalties. This four-CD set consists of live performances made at the Crescendo over 10 nights in 1961, plus a two-day.
