In the dark days before television, concerts were broadcast on the radio. Sometimes from a club or a concert hall, sometimes from a studio with no audience, but the music was still live. These shows often never made it to records. In the period when these performances were recorded (1940-45), two of the most popular jazz singers in America were Ella Fitzgerald and Mildred Bailey. Fitzgerald, with her dazzling technique and clear-as-a-bell enunciation, would go on to global lifelong fame. Mildred Bailey, with her somewhat more demure and duskier style, would be unfortunately mostly forgotten after 1950 (though she is still beloved by a cult following to this day). These BROADCASTS, with their relatively fine audio quality, present two great singers, one at the dawn of her career, the other in the twilight of hers.
