As well as singing, she played guitar in performance and on many of her recordings. Later in the 1940s, Booze recorded as a jazz vocalist with the Andy Kirk band, which featured trumpeter Fats Navarro, and also with a jazz quartet that included saxophonist George Kelly and organist Larry Johnson.

She retired from the music business in the early 1950s to settle first in Baltimore and later in Scottsville, New York, although she recorded with Sammy Price in 1962. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
