[*Read by the author - Geoffrey Mark Fidelman]

Ella Fitzgerald. The name alone conjures up images of the Savoy Ballroom, of the Chick Webb, Duke Ellington, and Count Basie bands, of hot jazz, sweet ballads, and a genuinely unique presence. Ella Fitzgerald, an artist who has been called a national treasure - and no one has disputed the laudation - has captivated an international audience for more than fifty years. Her inimitable voice has been heard in intimate clubs, in concerts, on radio and television, and on countless recordings.

First Lady of Song is a celebration of her life and work. In these pages are revived memories of duets with Frank Sinatra, harmonizing with Dinah Shore, and solo triumphs at Carnegie Hall.
