Sonia Johnson takes over the blues/jazz song Why Don’t You Do Right, written in 1936 by Joseph “Kansas Joe” McCoy and made popular by Ella Fitzgerald, as well as Peggy Lee and Benny Goodman.
Sonia Johnson interprets a rendition of the standard Lush Life, that Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington recorded together on the famous album Ella Fitzgerald sings the Duke Ellington songbook in 1957. Billy Strayhorn, the great accomplice of The Duke, composed this standard in the 1930s.
