FITZGERALD Ella

FITZGERALD ELLA (VC)

Newport News, Virginia. 25/4/1918. – Los Angeles, California. 15/6/1996.

Nel 1935 ha vinto un concorso per dilettanti organizzato all’Harlem Opera House ed è arrivata subito la scrittura della più famosa orchestra del momento quella di Chick Webb, il quale è diventato suo tutore ed in seguito suo marito. E’ diventata popolarissima, ha registrato moltissimi dischi. Alla morte di Webb ha assunto la direzione dell’orchestra fino al 1942. Ha registrato con molti gruppi, gli Ink Spots nel 1944, con i Delta Rhythm Boys nel 1945, insieme a Louis Armstrong, con l’organista Bill Doggett, con orchestre come Ellis Larkins, Sy Oliver, Benny Carter. Stella della JATP, l’organizzazione di Norman Granz, moltissime presenze nei club di jazz accompagnata dal trio del marito Ray Brown. Partecipazioni a famosi Festival ed in famosi concerti. Cantante dal timbro ricco e profondo e dalla gamma vastissima. Si è molte volte discusso su determinate interpretazioni e sulla loro appartenenza al Jazz, comunque la sua voce è pari ad uno strumento e non ha rivali nell’interpretazione delle classiche songs e la voce nera per eccellenza nel genere swing e non solo. In possesso di uno strumento perfetto di rara eleganza e musicalità, splendida e mai sensuale. Diligente lettrice dei testi, è diventata famosa per le sue capacità di solista piena anche di humour. Ha portato al successo moltissimi brani di jazz, canzoni popolari e rhythm and blues. Purtroppo i suoi ultimi anni di vita sono stati molto duri, ha dovuto subire l’amputazione di entrambe le gambe (sotto il ginocchio). Il suo ultimo desiderio da viva è stato quello di poter morire ascoltando la musica che tanto amava, è stato quindi ingaggiato il trio di Dave Bojorgez, il quale ha ricordato “ero letteralmente di sasso, lei è stata il mio idolo, ora suonavo mentre lei ci lasciava”. Nella cittadina che le ha dato i natali ogni anno si svolge un Festival in suo onore. Nel giugno del 1990 ha ricevuto la laurea ad honorem in musicologia dalla Università di Harvard, durante la cerimonia Ella ha detto “che emozione per chi quasi non sa leggere la musica”.
