Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mamie Smith (n e Robinson) (May 26, 1883 - September 16, 1946) was an American vaudeville singer, dancer, pianist and actress, who appeared in several motion pictures late in her career. As a vaudeville singer she performed a number of styles including jazz and blues. She entered blues history by being the first African American artist to make vocal blues recordings in 1920. Willie (the Lion) Smith (not her husband) explains the background to this recording in his (ghosted) autobiography "Music on my Mind."show more
