Una Mae Carlisle: Una Mae's death at 40 kept her from becoming as well known as other African-American female performer/song writers like Ella Fitzgerald. "Discovered" by Fats Waller in the 30's she was sought after for her boogie-woogie style and personality, blending humor into her sets. When her contract with Bluebird records expired she formed recording partnerships with Joe Davis and later Barney Young.
