The Chick Webb Saga
The Chick Webb orchestra was the house band at the Savoy Ballroom, a famous club in New York. Considered by many as a drum virtuoso, Chick Webb was “King of Swing” and became an icon of the new “swing style”. There were frequent “big band battles” at the Savoy, where the greatest bands in town competed with one another (Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington). Ella Fitzgerald made her debut with the Chick Webb orchestra.
