All of her other records were released under the name of Maggie Jones. The reason for this name change is unknown. She is best remembered today for the recordings she made in November and December of 1924 for the Columbia label which featured Louis Armstrong on cornet and Fletcher Henderson on piano. She continued to perform in vaudeville throughout the 1920s and had a small role in Lew Leslie's musical revue "Blackbirds of 1928".
She is known to have toured the East coast of the United States and France with this show. Sometime in the early 1930s she returned to Texas and was last known to have been performing in Fort Worth area in 1934. Her music has recently been included in Marco Nerone's "Library of the World's Greatest Music". Read more on Last.fm.
