A Song for Ella Grey by David Almond

Im the one whos left behind. Im the one to tell the tale. I knew them both...knew how they lived and how they died.

Claire is Ella Greys best friend. Shes there when the whirlwind arrives on the scene: catapulted into a North East landscape of gutted shipyards; of high arched bridges and ancient collapsed mines. She witnesses a love so dramatic it is as if her best friend has been captured and taken from her. But the loss of her friend to the arms of Orpheus is nothing compared to the loss she feels when Ella is taken from the world. This is her story - as she bears witness to a love so complete; so sure, that not even death can prove final.

The Best Songs About Ellas

The legacy of Ella Jenkins is a musical one. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, in , she spent her childhood on the south side of Chicago. Her parents had come up from the south, a part of the Great Migration of black southerners who sought economic freedom in the North. From the s on into the s, her Chicago neighborhood was rich with live music—singing games, rhymes and rhythms, blues, blues-flavored folk songs, and the spirituals and gospel music of the local churches.

The song is an anthem, a meditation on the ultimate lesson of the freedom fight passed down generationally by Ms. Nothing in this world can bring a message to the soul as quickly and effectively as music.

She was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing, intonation , and a "horn-like" improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing. After a tumultuous adolescence, Fitzgerald found stability in musical success with the Chick Webb Orchestra, performing across the country but most often associated with the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem. Her rendition of the nursery rhyme " A-Tisket, A-Tasket " helped boost both her and Webb to national fame. After taking over the band when Webb died, Fitzgerald left it behind in to start her solo career. Her manager was Moe Gale, co-founder of the Savoy, [1] until she turned the rest of her career over to Norman Granz , who founded Verve Records to produce new records by Fitzgerald. With Verve she recorded some of her more widely noted works, particularly her interpretations of the Great American Songbook.

Adam Gustafson does not work for, consult, own shares in or receive funding from any company or organisation that would benefit from this article, and has disclosed no relevant affiliations beyond their academic appointment. In the s — just as Fitzgerald was getting her start — jazz was under fire for its purported ties to drug culture. Two recordings from the beginning of her career signal this tension. One tune would go on to become a signature hit. The other would be largely forgotten, a side note to an otherwise squeaky-clean career.
