70 years later...still swingin'!  

Posted by Tony Guerrero

On this very day 70 years ago (May 2, 1938), jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald recorded her first big hit "A Tisket A Tasket" with the Chick Webb Orchestra. You still hear Ella's influence on singers today, not just in jazz but in pop, R&B and Hip-Hop as well. Enjoy the true Queen of Soul.

I've never seen so many adults smile for so long while riding a bus before.
