Queen of Jazz
Preparing to walk onstage at Harlem’s Savory Ballroom, she hurriedly stows a handkerchief in her silver bracelet. Stepping to the front of the stage, the orchestra strikes up and the house lights slowly focus on her figure as her smooth voice starts to croon the beginning lyrics of My Romance. Mrs. Ella Fitzgerald is entrancing the crowd and setting the world on fire as the Queen of Jazz.
