Ella Fitzgerald


Den 25 april skulle Ella Fitzgerald ha fyllt 100 år och det firar vi med specialpriser på utvalda skivor!

Ella Jane Fitzgerald was born in Newport News City, Warwick County, Virginia, on 25 April 1917. During her early childhood she and her siblings were abandoned by their truck-driver father to the devices of their laundress mother, Tempie, but despite poverty and less-than-equal odds, Ella stayed cheerful. A member of her school glee club, she also sang in the Bethany African Methodist Episcopal Church Choir, soon mastered the piano and listened avidly to the radio where she heard – and learned by heart – all the latest tunes from the Boswells and her hero Louis Armstrong.

Image Chill with Fitzgerald
Throughout her long career, her interpretative instinct never deserted her: elegant yet spontaneous, she became Number One among jazz-singers, although she vehemently rejected so restricting a label, seeing herself in the broader rôle of ‘singer of popular songs’. Whatever the repertoire, however, scat or ballad, none can outshine her innate sense of rhythm, technical security and identification over such a wide range of styles.

Image 3CD-BOX: Perdido Weather Bird (Jazz Characters)
For the whole of her quiet existence, Ella Fitzgerald lived to sing. Unlike Billie Holiday, she kept her private life low-key, drama-free and serene. There is no better way to understand every aspect of her huge talent than by listening to a live record. In the space of a single evening, she could sing blues, jazz, even variety music and hits from musicals, and also improvised music (scat) pulsing with a swing beat, or more subdued songs. A fan of small ensembles thanks to which her role as a vocalist was accentuated, she was able to explore every possible emotion, moving from one to another with an unusually intense stage presence.
