Lindy Hoppers Delight by Ella Fitzgerald, 1939
Song of the Week #006

This is a song that every swing dancer should know!! Used many times over for performances, this is still a great tune just to dance too.

Composed by William Henry "Chick" Webb, an American jazz and swing music drummer as well as a band leader. He died on June 16, 1939 (aged 34) and never got to record this song. Instead it was recorded by Ella Fitzgerald a few months afterwards, who led his bad until 1942.
