Valaida Snow - Trumpet

Sometimes you die before you get the credit you deserve. That's the case of the great trumpet player, Valaida Snow, who died in obscurity in 1952. She was a big hit on the "chittlin" circuit and well known on the European jazz scene. She was jailed in Denmark during WW2 when the Nazi's invaded and when she returned to the US never hit her musical stride again.
