Ella Fitzgerald Chart Profile

This page lists the album chart runs of Ella Fitzgerald. A list of songs by Ella Fitzgerald can be found here. The albums are listed with the most widely successful first.

Between 1935 and 1939 her output should probably be jointly credited to "The Chick Webb Orchestra" since she was singing with them at the time. In 1939 Chick Webb died and his group was renamed "Ella Fitzgerald & her Famous Orchestra" with Ella taking the role of bandleader. She continued recording with them until 1942.

She signed to Decca in 1942. In 1956 Norman Granz (who felt that Fitzgerald was given unsuitable material to record by Decca) created Verve Records and she sang with them until 1967 (by which time they had been absorbed by MGM).

Double Listing - Pete Kelly's Blues

Looks like #20 & #5 (under Duets with Peggy Lee) are the same.

We obviously fixed the artists but not the title. Data fixed, thanks

Double Listing - Pete Kelly's Blues

#20 should be combined with #5 (under duets w/ Peggy Lee).

Data fixed, thanks

(2) Double Listings

#3 and #4 are the same album and should be titled " Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Cole Porter Song Book". Also #5 and #11 are the same and should be titled " Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Irving Berlin Song Book".

We've consolidated the entries using the "Ella Sings ___" form (since that had more entries).

Thanks
