She began as a singer in churches in her teens, and spent 11 years as part of an a cappella choir. Turning to jazz, she worked the local Chicago club scene[2] before moving to Los Angeles in 1962 to further her career. She remains best known for her album Alexandria the Great (Impulse! Records, 1964), which featured her in a variety of contexts ranging from big bands to small groups, including several tracks with the Wynton Kelly Trio. Other musicians she recorded with included King Fleming, Ramsey Lewis, Howard McGhee, Gildo Mahones and Houston Person.
