I looked up Chick Webb in the search and I didn't find a single thread about him! Pretty surprising considering how influential he was. I wish I could have seen this man play live. Especially for the battle at the Savoy between his band and Count Basie's. Even some You Tube footage would be nice. So unfortunate that he died so young. He certainly was a good example as somebody that overcame the odds. At least we still have the recordings.
