In this clip from the 1942 film "Ride 'em Cowboy" Ella Fitzgerald sings "A-Tisket, A-Tasket", a song she had introduced with the "Chick Webb Band" in 1938.

*"A-Tisket, A-Tasket" was a children's rhyming game and circle dance, first noted in the U.S. in 1879.

In conjunction with Al Feldman, (later known as Van Alexander), Ella Fitzgerald, extended and embellished the rhyme into a jazz piece which was her breakthrough hit with the Chick Webb Orchestra in 1938. It has since become a jazz standard. A follow-up song written by Fitzgerald and Webb entitled "I Found My Yellow Basket" proved less successful.
