Facebook might be overwhelming but sometimes I discover interesting things like these rough cut clips from an upcoming feature documentary “THE SAVOY KING: Chick Webb and the Music That Changed America” which seems to be in post-production now.
THE SAVOY KING, produced/directed/written by Jeff Kaufman, is about the Swing-era drummer-bandleader Chick Webb, Ella Fitzgerald and Harlem's Savoy Ballroom.
These clips are from the latest cut of the film, finished on October 6, 2010.

I love watching documentaries, especially about the Swing era, and I'm looking forward to the release of The Savoy King.
