Eleanor Forte Sings Gershwin's "Summertime"

Can Eleanor Forte imitate Ella Fitzgerald? Hmmm…Judge for yourself in this performance of Summertime, modeled after Ella’s live performance of this George Gershwin classic from her 1960 concert in Berlin with the Paul Smith Quartet.

While Eleanor is no Ella, she came the closest of any of the English Synth V voicebanks to emulating Ella’s tone and style. I tried Eleanor, Solara, Anri, and even Kevin, but Eleanor gave the most regal performance.
