Let´s call the whole thing off
Louis Armstrong , and Ella Fitzgerald were the most incredible couple of jazz that history has revealed . Ella is regarded as the most important singer of jazz of the history , albeit she shone in every single style she touched . As for Louis Armstrong, apart from being one of the most charismatic and innovative figures of jazz, he was someone politically committed . He supported Martin Luther King economically . Louis Armstrong confronted Eisenhower and fought for civil rights of Afro-American citizens.
Although when Louis joined Ella, or Ella joined Louise , they recorded very famous songs such as "Cheek to Cheek" or" Dream a little dream of me " I have chosen this one as it shows the way that different words can be pronounced , it emphasises the differences in pronunciation, southern in the case of Louis ,as metaphor for the different personalities of a couple who are not able to understand each other , thus is a good way to know more accents apart from the British or American standard ones.
