What started out Sunday as a mild allergy issue turned into full-blown bronchitis for OTR yesterday. As a result, he missed the opportunity to blog about Ella Fitzgerald, his favorite pop/jazz female vocalist, who was born on April 25, 1917. OTR's not up to writing much today, so here is a link to his tribute from 2010 that includes links to some music posts. What a coincidence that Powerline's Scott Johnson also missed her birthday, but has posted a superb tribute with loads of music. Not to be missed. Here is your link.
