Ella: Ella Fitzgerald

The First Lady of Song - definitely the best voice I have ever heard. I like the ways her voice changed throughout her extensive 59 year career. I judge all others by her standards - it is so difficult to choose any favourite songs or performances. I am always willing to learn if anyone has any suggestions.

Fitzgerald had an extraordinary vocal range. A mezzo-soprano (who sang much lower than most classical contraltos), she had a range of “2 octaves and a sixth from a low D or D flat to a high B flat and possibly higher”

and scat
