All Music Guide - Michael G. Nastos
A collection of 18 tracks from Ella Fitzgerald's beginnings as a performer, these songs have her in front of Chick Webb's orchestra. For those discovering the First Lady of Song, this is an excellent place to start. You'll hear the voice of a young Fitzgerald on some of her goofiest jive numbers like "When I Get Low I Get High," "Vote for Mr. Rhythm," "Clap Hands!
