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

- Just a bit more on Doll, it seems her uncle played drums for Lovie
Austin circa 1922-3(?). From the Preston Jackson book 'Trombone Man'
"...I remember Mary Mack and her show opened at the Monogram Theatre.
Usually Lovie Austin and 'Scotty' played at the Monogram--that was
the band--just piano and drums, but I think they needed more
musicians. 'Scotty' the drummer was the uncle of Doll Jones, the best
woman cornetist I ever heard. Her mother, who was 'Scotty's sister,
was a cornetist too and she was around at that time, but she was not
as good as Doll. [the rest of the paragraph seems a bit off-topic, but
very interesting, so...] Mary Mack carried a New Orleans band which
played for the show. The personnel of that band was Mutt Carey,
cornet; Johnny Dodds, clarinet; Steve Lewis, piano ...and Baby Dodds
may have been the drummer. After that engagement at the Monogram, I
heard that the New Orleans band split up and Mutt Carey went back to
New Orleans and Johnny Dodds joined Oliver. Steve Lewis was a great
pianist and composer and wrote some very good tunes including 'The
Purple Rose Of Cairo'."

Frog CD "Hot Stuff" - Black Chicago Big Bands 1922-1929 (DGF 28),
released in 1999, still lists the first Elgar cornet as "Possibly"
The current (2002) Rust omits Perez and firmly identifies Will
It's been the only session listed for either of these musicians...
- I recall Perez was discounted a long time ago, since he simply couldn't have been present and the listing on Frog was more wishful thinking than anything else. But who was Will Washington?
