“Ella Fitzgerald – As in the good old days at the Savoy!”

It all began with a coincidence and complicity between Ronald Trisch, the head of the East German music agency, and Horst Lippmann, the West Berlin representative of major American artists.

In January 1967, Ella Fitzgerald was on a European tour with Duke Ellington and his orchestra. After a concert in West Berlin, January 25 was a day off. They jumped at the chance to organize a somewhat adventurous "detour" for Ella to East Berlin. At 11 p.m. on Wednesday evening, 3,000 people flocked to the Friedrichstadt Palace. This appearance in East Berlin would be the only one of her career...


This was a perilous affair. Karlheinz Drechsel, one of the organizers, and father of Ulf Drechsel, our correspondent in Germany, describes in his Memoirs, an excessively nervous Ella when, after crossing Check Point Charlie, she finds herself backstage. 


For almost an hour and a half, she treated the audience to some twenty tracks from the other side of the wall, alternating timeless standards with the hits of the moment, from the Beatles to Nancy Sinatra...


Late that night, before getting back into her car, heading for West Berlin, exhausted but drunk with happiness, she confesses to Karlheinz Drechsel: "It was just like the good old days at the Savoy!"

The story of this discovery

"It was in Potsdam, not far from Berlin, that the analog stereo tapes of this unique concert were found, but they were incomplete. Luckily, a year earlier we had met Ulf Drechsel, director of the RBB archives and son of Karlheinz Drechsel, one of the emblematic figures of Jazz in East Germany and one of the organizers of the Ella's concert in 1967. Luckily, his father had kept the mono analog tapes! But there were also incomplete. The concert had to be reconstructed, and the version of each track that most perfectly revealed the magic of the moment had to be chosen prior to the restoration work."
