The life of the very private and media-shy Ella Fitzgerald has long been shrouded in a mixture of half-truths and fiction. What emerges in Stuart Nicholson’s groundbreaking biography is a story of a poor black girl’s determination to realize the American Dream in the face of racial and sexual prejudice. She succeeded, and is now the definition of ‘jazz singer’ to millions, one of the greatest of all jazz musicians. In this account ever of her life, Nicholson draws on fresh research and interviews with Ella’s friends and colleagues. Supplemented by Phil Schaap’s authoritative discography, ‘Ella Fitzgerald’ is a revealing portrait of one of the most popular American singers in history.
