Cool Kids: Ella Fitzgerald/Miguel Migs- Slap That Bass

Verve Remixed is a series of albums which combine classic jazz musicians with electronic music producers. This particular song, "Slap That Bass" originally by Ella Fitzgerald and remixed by Miguel Migs, who is known for his extensive list of remixes, is off of the second Verve Remixed. In the original tune, Ella Fitzgerald sings about daily troubles that could all be remedied by simply hearing someone slap the bass. A jazz musician singing about bass is something any EDM producer might get excited about even if Fitzgerald is talking about, perhaps, an upright bass. All of you cool kids getting ready to enter into the world that is jazz music, this might be just the track for you.
