Now THAT'S Jazz

I was looking for footage of the moon on YouTube and one of my search results was this video of Ella Fitzgerald singing "How High The Moon." It's awesome and incredible and all that, yes, but my favorite part is how she totally messes up the words and then scats about it. (Caveat Emptor: the words are wrong to me; I'm used to hearing them in a different order. But another video on YT shows her singing it the same way. Who the hell knows--the point is that this is an incredible performance.)
