> Ella Fitzgerald was born on April 25, 1917, in Newport News, Virginia.
> She
> was the daughter of a commonlaw couple William Fitzgerald and Temperance
> "Tempie" Henry. Sometime around 1920, her parents split up and her Mom met
> a Portuguese immigrant named Joseph Da Silva,[3] moved to Yonkers. Ella's
> half sister, Frances Da Silva, was born in 1923. 1925 found the family on
> School Street, in an Italian area. She did well in grade school, ending up
> at Franklin Junior High School in 1929. By the age of nine, she grew to
> love
> dancing, and performed on the way to school for her friends. Her parents
> were active at Bethany African Methodist Episcopal Church, where she got a
> Christian education, and where she was exposed to music. She adored jazz
> recordings by Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby, and The Boswell Sisters.
> Connee
> Boswell was a great inspiration for her and later said "My mother brought
> home one of her records, and I fell in love with it...I tried so hard to
> sound just like her."
> At the age of fifteen, her mother died from injuries sustained in a car
> accident, leaving her in the care of her abusive step-father until 1933,
> when she moved to her aunt's house in Harlem. Soon, school became less
> important to her, and she started as a lookout in a bordello.
> After a while, she was placed in the Colored Orphan Asylum in Riverdale
> in
> the Bronx, and then to the New York Training School for Girls, a
> reformatory
> school. By 1935, at the age of 18, she started singing with Chick Webb's
> band.

> 'Cow
> Cow Boogie' is one of the earliest recordings she did with the Ink Spots.
> On

> with
> Rex Stewart's Big Four on two sides from the HRS label in 1947 - Flim Flam

>
> This album is devoted to Billy Kyle, John Kirby and O'Neill Spencer and
> the
> different bands they played with. Billy Kyle's band accompanied Ella in
> 1946. The story that has come out of this project is about illness.
> Tuberculosis. Chick Webb had contracted the diesase as a child, and his
> foray into drumming was as a therepy for the spinal issues he had to deal
> with. It was felt that the rigorous physical activity wou help to 'loosen
> his spine,' which was curved because of the effects of tuberculosis. Even
> John Kirby who had diabetes, had his health challenges. Born in 1908, he
> was
> adopted out as a baby and brought up by a minister and his wife. His birth
> name was John Kirk. At the age of nine, he took up the trombone and in
> 1927,
> trombonist Jimmy Harrison suggested that he switch to tuba, which was
> still
> popular at the time. Thelma Terry and her Playboys was led by a female
> string bass player who had a very young Gene Krupa in her band. They waxed
> seven sides in 1928. Other string bass leaders were Oliver Bibb and His
> Joy
> Boys in ca. 1929, London based Spike Hughes,and Walter Page (bb-sb-bar).
> Slam Stewart recorded with Slim Gaillard but never seems to have directed
> a
> band. Maybe if Ella Fitzgerald had partnered with Slam Stewart they could
> be
> called Slam 'n Ella. Maybe not.
>
> It seems that John Kirby was the only bass playing band leader during the
> swing era. He did have formal training with Professor Powell Gibson and
> was
> knowledgeable about classical music, and interested in playing the notes
> as
> written. Anitra's Dance is a testament to his subtle blend of modern
> chamber
> jazz and classical music. At the age of fifteen, he embarked on a musical
> career, leaving school behind. By the age of twenty four, he had graduated
> to the New York music scene. John Kirby's first recording was with Bill
> Brown and his Brownies in 1929 for Brunswick. At that time he was still
> playing tuba as well as string bass. I don't have the 78s from that
> session,
> but on 'Zonky,' Kirby plays very strong tuba, switches to string bass
> midstream and finishes again with tuba. An inspiring precurser to what was
> to come. He would record with Fletcher Henderson (first playing tuba then
> graduating to string bass), Red Allen, Mezz Mezzrow, Wingy Manone, Mildred
> Bailey and Ethel Waters. He was taking bass lessions from Wellman Braud
> and
> Pops Foster and opted to focus on the bass after 1932. 1934 found him
> playing with Chick Webb's band, but he was desired so much as a session
> musician that he can be found all over the place. July of 1935 found him
> recording on Teddy Wilson's first session with his orchestra, and by
> January
> 1937, he was in a session with Billie Holiday when she organized her own
> orchestra. He started as leader at the Onyx Club. His association with
> Maxine Sullivan, Midge Williams and Teddy Grace would follow. I have
> included both their Vocalion and Decca recordings of Loch Lomond. Midge
> Williams would also record with Teddy Wilson. Charlie Shavers replaced
> Frank
> Newton on trumpet, resultin in the ensemble that you hear on this volume.
> John Kirby would be gone by forty-three years of age, leaving a legacy of
> his wonderful chamber jazz. ~ Mickey Clark

> already around in 1930, with instruments such as the Neo-Bechstein Grand

> the
> first recordings Ella made with Sy Oliver. Starting on disc eleven, the
> focus will be on Sy Oliver, and his work as musician and arranger for
> Jimmie
> Lunceford, Tommy Dorsey, followed by his own orchestra. Ella really is
> coming into her own distinctive sound about this time. I feel that in her
> time with Chick Webb, she didn't sing the songs that required subtlety. In
> the mid forties, she had a little bit more capacity to lay back and sing
> more gently and fluidly. Of course, the development of amplifiers was well
> on it's way by the mid thirties, but having a monitor so one can her one's
> self over a large orchestra was a fairly new thing, and allowed for a much
> more intimate style that she would use to great effect in the Gershwin and
