Pianist, Joe Steele was a graduate from the New England Conservatory for which he was tagged with the nickname "Professor." He appeared on the earliest recordings of Ella Fitzgerald along with drummer Chick Webb. During the mid to the late '20's Steele started playing with the "Savoy Bearcats", providing him an opportunity to record, and by 1929 was leading his own successful New York based Orchestra.
