American bandleader, arranger and composer.
Born : May 02, 1915 in New York City, New York.
Van Alexander was barely out of his teens when he sold his first arrangement to Chick Webb, whose band was a frequent attraction at the fabled Savoy Ballroom in New York's Harlem. For the next couple of years, until he launched his own successful career as a bandleader, Van continued to contribute charts for the Webb band, including the now famous arrangement of 'A-Tisket A-Tasket', which became the first big record hit for Chick's young vocalist, Ella Fitzgerald.
