She seems like a perfectly lovely young teen-aged girl, and I have no doubt that she really really loves Ella Fitzgerald. But this love of Ella Fitzgerald is not a good enough reason for you to hire professional, if local, jazz musicians and have her cut an album that gets sent to jazz critics. This, in fact, is a bad idea. In fact, if you would like come over to my house next week and listen to me now, alas, 50 and bald, but still short and wildly enthusiastic about music and about Ella Fitzgerald recreate these scat solos, then I will grill you some burgers for your trouble. Louis Blues! Congratulations to her.
Sorry, Parents of All Those Little Prodigies Out There, Jazz Is Not for Amateurs
