Ella Fitzgerald, performing at the Empire Room at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York, March 30, 1971

This spring, we celebrate Ella Fitzgerald's centennial birthday [b. April 25, 1917]. As WNYC's Sara Fishko tells us, she was an undisputedly brilliant and exuberant scat singer, and she's featured, along with a few others, in this Fishko Files on the art of Scat. (Produced in 2004)
