Description


The First Lady of Song, American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996), was the most popular female jazz singer in the United States for more than half a century. She is known for her pure voice, her improvisation, her swing, and her scat singing. Fitzgerald's 60-year career began with the Chick Webb Orchestra in 1934. She started her solo career in 1942, which continued until 1994. Fitzgerald's interpretations of the Great American Songbook - songs by Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Irving Berlin, and George and Ira Gershwin among them - are some of her most popular recordings. "A-Tisket, A-Tasket," "Summertime, " and "How Long Has This Been Going On?" are just a few of her notable works. The Short Biographies series from Applewood's Benna Books imprint features short, intriguing, and entertaining biographies of world-renowned figures. Each beautiful hardcover book includes an interesting retelling of a single person's life, suitable for young adults and adults alike. These little gems will become beloved souvenirs of a favorite artist or a memorable trip to a museum.
