First Lady of Song: Ella Fitzgerald for the Record | [Geoffrey Mark Fidelman]

First Lady of Song: Ella Fitzgerald for the Record

Ella Fitzgerald. The name alone conjures up images of the Savoy Ballroom; of the Chick Webb, Duke Ellington, and Count Basie bands; of hot jazz, sweet ballads, and a genuinely unique presence. Ella Fitzgerald, an artist who was called a national treasure - and no one ever disputed the laudation - has continued to captivate an international audience for more than 50 years. Her voice was heard in intimate clubs, in concerts, on radio and television, and continues to be heard on countless recordings.

Publisher's Summary

Ella Fitzgerald. The name alone conjures up images of the Savoy Ballroom; of the Chick Webb, Duke Ellington, and Count Basie bands; of hot jazz, sweet ballads, and a genuinely unique presence. Ella Fitzgerald, an artist who was called a national treasure - and no one ever disputed the laudation - has continued to captivate an international audience for more than 50 years. Her inimitable voice was heard in intimate clubs, in concerts, on radio and television, and continues to be heard on countless recordings.

First Lady of Song is a celebration of her life and work. Here are revived memories of duets with Frank Sinatra, harmonizing with Dinah Shore, and solo triumphs at Carnegie Hall.

What the Critics Say

"[A] ‘labor of love and respect’ [which] illuminates Fitzgerald’s elusive personality…. Required reading for jazz fans." (Booklist)

"In this labor of love, Fidelman chronicles the singer’s scores of best-selling recordings and countless awards and, in later years, her being presented to heads of state and working as spokesperson in commercials for Memorex." (Library Journal)
