Jazz with George Thomas with Birds & Ella Fitzgerald for Monday, 04/25/11

Inspired by the Vermont Edition's annual "Bird Show" we explore the world
of birds in jazz lyrics & titles, including, of course, Charlie "Yardbird"
Parker's myriad of songs with "Bird" in the title.  We also celebrate the
birthday of the peerless Ella Fitzgerald with more bird songs.
