Ella in Berlin is a 1960 live album by the American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald. This album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999, which is a special Grammy award established in 1973 to honor recordings that are at least twenty-five years old, and that have "qualitative or historical significance. One of Fitzgerald's most acclaimed live performances, at this concert in Berlin, Fitzgerald improvised lyrics for "Mack the Knife" after forgetting the original lyrics.

Album · 1960 · 9 Songs. Fitzgerald was well into her stint on Verve in 1960, so it stands to reason that Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, and the Gershwins-the focal points of her albums with producer Norman Granz-loomed large here. But while the songbooks boasted meticulous polish, Mack the Knife showed that Ella could still summon the visceral crackle of small-group jazz. Revisiting How High the Moon, her signature showpiece since the ’40s, she dials the tempo up to impossible.

Recorded February 13, 1960 live at Deutschlandhallen, West Berlin, Germany with The Paul Smith Quartet. Winner of 2 Grammy Awards in 1960. Manufactured by Columbia Records of Canada, Lt. under registered user agreement from Verve Records Inc. Other Versions (5 of 111) View All.

Ella Fitzgerald was at the peak of her form during her 1960 tour of Europe. Her Berlin concert is most remembered for her hilariously inventive version of "Mack the Knife," during which she forgot the words and substituted ones of her own that somehow fit, amazing herself in the process. With fine support from her quartet - pianist Paul Smith, guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Wilfred Middlebrooks, drummer Gus Johnson - Fitzgerald is brilliant throughout the well-rounded set, with highlights including "Misty" (a version very different from Sarah Vaughan's), "The Lady.
