The Beatles Abbey Road. With Verve she recorded some of her more widely noted works, particularly her interpretations of the Great American Songbook. While Fitzgerald appeared in movies and as a guest on popular television shows in the second half of the twentieth century, her musical collaborations with Louis ArmstrongDuke Ellingtonand The Ink Spots were some of her most notable acts outside of her solo career. Inafter a career of nearly 60 years, she gave her last public performance.
Three years later, she died at the age of 79 after years of declining health. Fitzgerald was born on April 25,in Newport News, Virginia. Starting in third grade, Fitzgerald loved dancing and admired Earl Snakehips Tucker. She performed for her peers on the way to school and at lunchtime. She loved the Boswell Sisters' lead singer Connee Boswelllater saying, "My mother brought home one of her records, and I fell in love with it I tried so hard to sound just like her.
Inwhen Fitzgerald was fifteen, her mother died from injuries sustained in a car accident. Fitzgerald began skipping school, and her grades suffered.
She worked as a lookout at a bordello and with a Mafia-affiliated numbers runner. While she seems to have survived during and in part from singing on the streets of HarlemFitzgerald made her most important debut at age 17 on November 21,in one of the earliest Amateur Nights at the Apollo Theater.
Although Webb was "reluctant to sign her Met with approval by both audiences and her fellow musicians, Fitzgerald was asked to join Webb's orchestra and gained acclaim as part of the group's performances at Harlem's Savoy Ballroom.
Paganini ". Webb died of spinal tuberculosis on June 16, and his band was renamed Ella and Her Famous Orchestra with Fitzgerald taking on the role of bandleader. In addition to her work with Webb, Fitzgerald performed and recorded with the Benny Goodman Orchestra. Inwith increasing dissent and money concerns in Fitzgerald's band, Ella and Her Famous Orchestra, she started to work as lead singer with The Three Keys, and in July her band played their last concert at Earl Theatre in Philadelphia.
With the demise of the swing era and the decline of the great touring big bandsa major change in jazz music occurred. The advent of bebop led to new developments in Fitzgerald's vocal style, influenced by her work with Dizzy Gillespie 's big band. It was in this period that Fitzgerald started including scat singing as a major part of her performance repertoire.
While singing with Gillespie, Fitzgerald recalled, "I just tried to do [with my voice] what I heard the horns in the band doing. Her scat recording of " Flying Home " arranged by Vic Schoen would later be described by The New York Times as "one of the most influential vocal jazz records of the decade Where other singers, most notably Louis Armstrong, had tried similar improvisation, no one before Miss Fitzgerald employed the technique with such dazzling inventiveness.
Although the tour was a big hit with audiences and set a new box office record for Australia, it was marred by an incident of racial discrimination that caused Fitzgerald to miss the first two concerts in Sydney, and Gordon had to arrange two later free concerts to compensate ticket holders. Although the four members of Fitzgerald's entourage — Fitzgerald, her pianist John Lewisher assistant and cousin Georgiana Henry, and manager Norman Granz — all had first-class tickets on their scheduled Pan-American Airlines flight from Honolulu to Australia, they were ordered to leave the aircraft after they had already boarded and were refused permission to re-board the aircraft to retrieve their luggage and clothing.
As a result, they were stranded in Honolulu for three days before they could get another flight to Sydney.
Although a contemporary Australian press report  quoted an Australian Pan-Am spokesperson who denied that the incident was racially based, Fitzgerald, Henry, Lewis and Granz filed a civil suit for racial discrimination against Pan-Am in December  and in a television interview Fitzgerald confirmed that they had won the suit and received what she described as a "nice settlement".
She left Decca, and Granz, now her manager, created Verve Records around her. She later described the period as strategically crucial, saying, "I had gotten to the point where I was only singing be-bop. I thought be-bop was 'it', and that all I had to do was go some place and sing bop. But it finally got to the point where I had no place to sing.
I realized then that there was more to music than bop. It was a turning point in my life. On March 15,Ella Fitzgerald opened her initial engagement at the Mocambo nightclub in Hollywood,   after Marilyn Monroe lobbied the owner for the booking. Bonnie Greer dramatized the incident as the musical drama, Marilyn and Ellain It had previously Sisters Of Mercy - Leonard Cohen - Special (Cassette) widely reported that Fitzgerald was the first black performer to play the Mocambo, following Monroe's intervention, but this is not true.
African-American singers Herb Jeffries Eartha Kitt and Joyce Bryant  all played the Mocambo in andaccording to stories published at the time in Jet magazine and Billboard. The composers and lyricists spotlighted on each set, taken together, represent the greatest part of the cultural canon known as the Great American Songbook. Her song selections ranged from standards to rarities and represented an attempt by Fitzgerald to cross over into a non-jazz audience.
The sets are the most well-known items in her discography. Duke Ellington and his longtime collaborator Billy Strayhorn both appeared on exactly half the set's 38 tracks and wrote two new pieces of music for the album: "The E and D Blues" and a four-movement musical portrait of Fitzgerald.
The Song Book series ended up becoming the singer's most critically acclaimed and commercially successful work, and probably her most significant offering to American culture. The New York Times wrote in"These albums were among the first pop records to devote such serious attention to individual songwriters, and they were instrumental in establishing the pop album as a vehicle for serious musical exploration.
Days after Fitzgerald's death, The New York Times columnist Frank Rich wrote that in the Song Book series Fitzgerald "performed a cultural transaction as extraordinary as Elvis ' contemporaneous integration of white and African American soul. Here was a black woman popularizing urban songs often written by immigrant Jews to a national audience of predominantly white Christians. While recording the Song Books and the occasional studio album, Fitzgerald toured 40 to 45 weeks per year in the United States and internationally, under the tutelage of Norman Granz.
Granz helped solidify her position as one of the leading live jazz performers. Though the relationship ended after a year, Fitzgerald regularly returned to Denmark over the next three years and even considered buying a jazz club there.
The house was sold inand Fitzgerald permanently returned to the United States. There are several live albums on Verve that are highly regarded by critics. Ella in Rome and Twelve Nights in Hollywood display her vocal jazz canon. Ella in Berlin is still one of her best-selling albums; it includes a Grammy-winning performance of " Mack the Knife " in which she forgets the lyrics but improvises magnificently to compensate.
Over the next five years she flitted between AtlanticCapitol and Reprise. Her material at this time represented a departure from her typical jazz repertoire.
For Capitol she recorded Brighten the Corneran album of hymnsElla Fitzgerald's Christmasan album of traditional Christmas carolsMisty Bluea country and western -influenced album, and 30 by Ellaa series of six medleys that fulfilled her obligations for the label. During this period, she had her last US chart single with a cover of Smokey Robinson 's " Get Ready ", previously a hit for the Temptationsand some months later a top-five hit for Rare Earth.
The surprise success of the album Jazz at Santa Monica Civic '72 led Granz to found Pablo Recordshis first record label since the sale of Verve. Fitzgerald recorded some 20 albums for the label. Ella in London recorded live in with pianist Tommy Flanaganguitarist Joe Pass, bassist Keter Betts and drummer Bobby Durham, was considered by many to be some of her best work. Her years with Pablo Records also documented the decline in her voice.

Inshe performed a medley of standards in a duet with Karen Carpenter on the Carpenters' television special Music, Music, Music.
Fitzgerald also appeared in TV commercials, her most memorable being an ad for Memorex. Ella Fitzgerald Just One of Those Things is a film about her life including interviews with many famous singers and musicians who worked with her and her son.
It was directed by Leslie Woodhead and produced by Reggie Nadelson. It was released in the UK in Fitzgerald had a number of famous jazz musicians and soloists as sidemen over her long career. Possibly Fitzgerald's greatest unrealized collaboration in terms of popular music was a studio or live album with Frank Sinatra. Pianist Paul Smith has said, "Ella loved working with [Frank].
