Montreux '75

Montreux '75 is a 1975 live recorded album by the American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald, accompanied by a trio led by the pianist Tommy Flanagan.

This is one of four albums that Ella recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival, and it was Ella's first appearance at Montreux to be released on record. It provides a perfect snapshot of her concert repertoire and voice at this stage in her career, with familiar Fitzgerald material from Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, and songs from her upcoming album Ella Abraça Jobim.
