The Early Years, Pt. 2
Want to borrow this?

Ella Fitzgerald began her career while still in her teens, singing with drummer Chick Webb's great swing band, and rapidly establishing herself as one of the era's leading singers. When Webb died in 1938, Fitzgerald assumed the leadership of the band. This two-CD set documents the period from 1939 to 1941, and it includes hits like the opening "Undecided," the kind of rhythm tune with which Fitzgerald could already distinguish herself, with a meticulous command of tune and timing. Webb was irreplaceable, but the group remained a distinguished swing band, while Fitzgerald demonstrated the musical way with ballads that would be a hallmark of her career. --Stuart Broomer
