About Blanche Calloway
Blanche Calloway (February 9, 1902 - December 16, 1978) was an African-American jazz singer, bandleader, and composer.
She was the older sister of Cab Calloway, she was scattin' before he was. Dropping out of Maryland's then controversial all negro Morgan State College in 1923 for a life in show business, Calloway was the first woman to lead an all-male orchestra. With a music career that spanned over fifty years, she recorded in the 20's for Okeh and Vocalion, including a 1925 session with Louis Armstrong
