anna mae - & did!

from 30.00

art/history: STOP & READ this. even if you hate my art, i implore you to learn about the person pictured here. the apocryphal story is that she was hired for her physical (rather than musical) attributes, but hired she was - as the female bandleader of the racially integrated (all women) orchestra, the international sweethearts of rhythm. she had the last laugh at her employers, for she could sing her sweet arse off. i insist that you go out of your way to watch & hear anna mae winburn (born #otd on 1913) in action with the international sweethearts of rhythm (video in comments) - &, by all means, read up on the history of this exceptional band.
