100th Anniversary of Ella Fitzgerald (* April 25, 1917)

Pianist Jimmy Rowles supposedly once said about Ella Fitzgerald, “She exudes music. When she walks down the street she doesn’t leave behind footprints but notes.” She is the undisputed “Queen of Jazz.” Her once in a lifetime voice (OR: out of this world) had a range of more than three octaves. Fitzgerald used her voice like an instrument and produced sheer wonders in terms of diction, phrasing and intonation and most of all in her famous scat-improvisation.

Born into extreme poverty Fitzgerald became an orphan at the age of 15.  She became aware of her talent at an amateur contest in 1934. Originally she had planned on performing a dance, but she was so nervous her knees where shaking, and so she decided to sing instead—winning the first prize. A year later Chick Webb hired her for his orchestra. Their rendition of “A-Tisket, A-Tasket”landed them on number one of the charts. When Webb died the following year Fitzgerald took over the band. Beginning in the early 1940s she started to focus on her solo career. After the jazz impresario Norman Grant recorded the singer for his legendary concert series “Jazz at the Philharmonic” she regularly shared the stage—and the studio--with jazz legends such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong. Between the mid-1950s and 1960s she recorded the legendary “songbooks” by the big American composers such as Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and George and Ira Gershwin.  She set the standard for the interpretation of these works—to this day.  The series became an international success, and in 1958 Ella won the first of 13 Grammies. And when “Lady Ella” wasn’t recording one of her more than 200 albums, she was almost always on the road touring. She often came to Germany as well, where she recorded three of her live albums. Stricken with diabetes Ella Fitzgerald performed her last concert in June of 1991 at Carnegie Hall in New York. She died five years later at the age of 79 in Beverly Hills.
