Van Alexander (né Alexander Van Vliet Feldman, born May 2, 1915) is an American bandleader, arranger, and composer. Alexander led bands (Van Alexander & His Orchestra) and arranged from high school, and studied composition in college. He landed a job selling arrangements to Chick Webb in the middle of the 1930s. One of these, “A-Tisket, A-Tasket”, became a hit for Webb and Ella Fitzgerald, and subsequently became one of her signature tunes. Alexander later arranged other nursery rhymes for jazz performance, such as “Where, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?” and “Got a Pebble in My Shoe”.
