When Chick Webb died in 1939, his orchestra was taken over by Ella Fitgerald, and soon renamed Ella Fitzgerald And Her Famous Orchestra. In The Radio Years 1940, we catch Fitgerald at the top of her career so far, captured in two NBC recordings on the approach to the peak of her fame.

Ella Fitgerald (1917-1996) is widely regarded as the best female vocalist ever, and is noted for her wide range, pure tone, perfect intonation and great improvisation. When these recordings were made in 1940, she was already a huge name, and had beaten Bing Crosby in two polls for the best singer at the time. While her best work was still to come, this CD showcases the talent before the legend.
