Watched a couple of the Jazz tapes (http://www.pbs.org/jazz/). So awesome, Jazz is.

And poor Chick Webb; almost didn't get the recognition that he deserved. He played at The Savoy in Harlem (Bill Clinton's area), for years, as band leader after band leader brought their orchestra there to try and beat the Swingiest Band in America. [Only Count Basie came close].

In the end, it was Pearl Bailey that was his redemption.
