Activity:Who Am I?
Ella Fitzgerald singing Mack The Knife
1. I showed jazz muicians how to sing through their instruments and jazz singers how to improvise with their voices. My song "Heebie Jeebies" made scat singing the thing.
2. Jazz audiences loved my scat singing, clear diction, and interpretations of great jazz standrads such "Lady Be Good". I was called the "First Lady Of Son"
3. I wrote words to Shorty Baker's trumpet solo on Duke Ellington's "Mood Indigo" and created a new song called "Shorty Indigo," using a method called vocalese.
4. I didn't scat sing or solo. I didn't sing very high or low. But my sensitivity to lyrics and phrasing me me one of the best-loved singers of my time. I was called "Lady Day."
Ella a singer with clarity of tone, flexibility of range, fluency of rhythm, and, above all, a talent for improvisation that was equally effective on ballads and up-tempo tunes. Even when singing sad ballads Ella's voice would always seem to be joyful .
