Paula John's "A Tisket, A Tasket"

On April 26th at 7:30 at Clancy’s by the Bay In commemoration and celebration of Ella Fitzgerald’s 100th birthday, the South Jersey Jazz Society is happy to present vocalist Paula Johns.  Paula will be paying tribute to this great lady of song by performing her “Ella” show…”A Tisket, A Tasket”, A Tribute to Ella Jane Fitzgerald

Paula will be performing some of Ella’s greatest songs like, “A Tisket, A Tasket”, “Mr. Paganini”, “How High the Moon” and countless others.  Ella was known for her interpretation of songs from The Great American Songbooks of George & Ira Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter and numerous others.

Paula like Ella, enjoys a great lyric that tugs at your heartstrings as well as a lyric that’ll make you fall off your seat with laughter. She is known for her “sassy & humorous” presence on stage and often jumps off the stage to involve her audience in all the fun!
Paula has one of the greatest bands accompanying her for the “Ella” Tribute; The Tom Adams Trio featuring;

  • Tom Adams on piano, who has worked with Cybil Shepherd, Bette Midler, Anita O’Day, Keely Smith, and Mel Torme, to name a few. He is an accomplished singer & recording artist himself.
