Oodles of Doodles LVII-Christmas In July


Today's rather elegant doodle belongs to Ella Fitzgerald's Christmas (Capitol ST 2805, 1967). I believe this was Ella's second christmas album, the first one was for Verve. She was a little bit older on this one, and perhaps she didn't swing quite as much as on the earlier one, but she's still the first lady of song, so you know it's gonna be good. At first I thought maybe this doodle was all one single line, but it's actually five or six single lines. Still, it's got a quiet elegance that's not found in most of the doodles I've posted. Hope you enjoy it!

I like the B&Ws, and this one is the most refined of all, not really "hip", but classy.
