“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt…it was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night...She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.” -Ella Fitzgerald-
