Analysis, meaning and summary of James A. Emanuel's poem Ella Fitzgerald


  1. michael m t danso says:

    Brilliant!. anyone who knows Haiku would knowthat this is a haiku mind-picture representing a haiku scat in the inimitable Ella Fitzgerald form and style..This took a true Master of the Art and a Jazz Afficionado to to put this together in this way.. Thank you James A. Emanuel..and Ben Dover…: do your homework and increase and acquire a broader and increased understanding of Haiku.. You will enjoy it – if you like educating yourself..Yes, I AM proudly politically incorrect, but truthful !
