I don't have my reference books handy right now but wasn't there a female
some of the later Harlem Hamfats sessions?
According to Paige van Vorst's research, which was published in Mississippi
Rag, she's on both their 1939 Vocalion sessions.
Bartender's Blues/Ready for The River, 31 March 1939, Vocalion 04870 is a
good example of her work.
She was also a member of Lil Armstrong's bands in the 30s, though
unfortunately not on record. She was in the International Sweethearts of
Rhythm in the early 40s and is believed to have moved to Canada in the mid
