I have been looking for a song for a few days now. It is by the great Ella Fitzgerald and includes a LOT of scatting. Basically the whole song is scatting and only has a bit of lyrics in it. The lyrics in it are from other famous songs. At one point she busts out "Davy, Davy Crockett..." and then another point she scats into "When the moon hits your eye..."

Anyone know the name of this song? I have searched and searched on limewire with no luck. My friend swears he found it searching under her name and 'scatting' but I did not have the same results.

It sounds like it's either "The A-Train" or "Mr. Paganini." Good luck.

The name of that song is "Air Mail Special". I was going to post a snippet for you but all I could find was Ella’s scatting parts in the song.

I found a snippet with Ella saying the Davy Crockett line.

:60 snippet here (she says "Davy Crockett" at the :28 mark) (http://mfile.akamai.com/3164/wm2/muze.download.akamai.com/2890/us/uswm2/363/64363_1_12.asx?obj=v10207)
