    The Savoy Ballroom, located in Harlem, New York City, was a medium sized ballroom for music and public dancing that was in operation from March 12, 1926 to July 10, 1958.
    It was located between 140th and 141st Streets on Lenox Avenue.

    The Savoy was a popular dance venue from the late 1920s to the 1950s and many dances such as Lindy Hop became famous here. It was known downtown as the Home of Happy Feet but uptown, in Harlem, as the Track. Unlike the 'whites only' policy of the Cotton Club, the Savoy Ballroom was integrated where white and black Americans danced together. Virtuosic dancers, however, excluded others from the northeast corner of the dance floor, now referred to as the Cat's Corner, a term not used at the time.

    Chick Webb was the leader of the best known Savoy house band during the mid-1930s.

  • Stompin at the Savoy by Chick Webb and his Orchestra - Sticky Wicket

    3:35

    Here is a vintage drum cover of the great tune 'Stompin' at the Savoy' by Chick Webb and His Orchestra' that we recorded ages ago and never ended up putting on YouTube. This was filmed before we began using the in-ear monitoring system for Sticky Wicket, hence the audio perhaps not being as good as some of our later videos. We decided to release this however, simply to cheer everyone up a bit while we're all stuck at home for a while. We can only find footage from 1 camera angle too due to my file management back then being not quite as effective as it is now. Hope you enjoy, more great drum videos coming very soon so remember to subscribe.

  • 1938 Chick Webb - Liza

    2:43

    Drummer Webb takes the spotlight on this swingin’ Benny Carter arrangement which made its way into over a million homes by virtue of its 78rpm pairing with the band’s hugely popular “A-Tisket A-Tasket.”

    Gus Kahn and the Gershwins had written this tune years earlier for the Ziegfeld musical comedy “Show Girl,” which featured Ruby Keeler, Jimmy Durante, Eddie Foy Jr, Frank McHugh, and Nick Lucas. Keeler’s husband Al Jolson sat in the audience on occasion and serenaded her with “Liza,” the show’s closing number.

    CD audio source, the original 78rpm single was issued on Decca 1840 - Liza (All The Clouds’ll Roll Away) (Gershwin-Gershwin-Kahn) by Chick Webb & his Orchestra, recorded in NYC May 3, 1938

    as rec by Ella fitzgerald w Chick Webb & his Orch
    May 2nd 1938 New York
    I'm just a jitterbug,
    A happy jitterbug,
    A little jitterbug lookin' for a place to jive.
    I'm not a corny hick, (scat)
    I know a real hot lick, (scat)
    'Cause I'm a jitterbug, mighty glad that I'm alive!
    Give me a solid ascender,
    Not just an elbow bender!
    Don't want no old time jazz,
    No razzamataz, just swing!
    'Cause I'm just a jitterbug,
    A happy jitterbug,
    A little jitter jitter jitterbug lookin' for a place to jive.
    The trumpet's goin' crazy,
    Say, he is a torrid cat!
    He sure can swing a-plenty
    When he's blowin' through his hat!
    Just listen to that gentleman,
    He's gettin' awful licks!
    Sure, when that baby goes to town
    He sure is mighty slick!
    And now, a-listen folks and you will hear
    The drummer of the band;
    Now I know that he's a drummer
    By that drumstick in his hand!
    So gather round me, all you cats,
    Let each man di his part;
    Come on, you leader, beat it all,
    The jammin's gonna start!

    Chick Webb with Ella Fitzgerald - Rock It For Me [1937]

    Rock It For Me is a song written by twins Kay and Sue Werner, and released as a single in 1938 by Chick Webb and his Orchestra, featuring singer Ella Fitzgerald. It reached no. 19 on the US Billboard music chart.
    The lyrics to Rock It For Me make an early, specific reference to the term rock and roll, with …won’t you satisfy my soul with the rock and roll? The song also mentions a new kind of rhythm, suggesting …I'm all through with symphony, and …it’s true that once upon a time the opera was the thing…but today the rage is rhythm and rhyme.
    Although the term rock and roll was not widely used to describe a musical genre until the 1950s, uses of the term were not uncommon in various blues and jazz recordings from the 1920s onward. Billboard columnist Maurie Orodenker used the term as early as 1942, while Cleveland, Ohio disc jockey Alan Freed helped make the phrase popular in the early 1950s.

    My fur got stole

    But I'm not gonna holler
    'cause I still got a dollar
    And when I get low
    Oooo I get high
    My man walked out
    Now you know that ain't right
    but He better watch out
    If I see him tonight
    and when I get low
    Oooo I get high
    All the bad luck in this town surrounds me (maybe you have this bit right)
    Nobody knows how troubles all crowd around me
    I'm all alone
    With no-one to pet me
    But that old rocking chair
    Ain't never gonna get me

    MY WILD IRISH ROSE (1939, Chick Webb Big Band)


    Chick's was the house band at the Savoy Ballroom in NYC. Ella Fitzgerald was discovered by Chick in 1935, and became the band's singer. After Chick's death in 1939, she led the band until it dissolved in 1942....


    YES!! This was recorded in the same year that Chick succumbed to his many ailments -- he was born hunchback and crippled, due to tuberculosis of the spine...

    A wonderful example of swing in motion and then slow motion, as we listen to Chick Webb's two bar break on his June 2, 1936 recording of SWING ME A SWING SONG AND LET ME DANCE.
    He brings the band back in with three eighth notes, jumping a beat or so ON PURPOSE - some have said his breaks landed unintentionally apart from the beat - impossible! It was just his desire to shift things, and makes the breaks more exciting.
