Trixie Smith

Biography

Among the basic blues Smith performers from the 1920s (although unrelated to Bessie, Clara and Mamie), Trixie Smith had a unique voice and a nice design of her own. She researched at Selma College or university, moved to NY in 1915, and performed in vaudeville and on the TOBA circuit. Smith proved helpful in New York’s theaters through the 1920s and ’30s as an actress-singer and remained energetic throughout her lifestyle. She documented prolifically during 1922-25 for Dark Swan and Paramount with her best-known schedules leading to four tracks in 1925 where Louis Armstrong is at her back-up group; additional sidemen on the way included Wayne P. Johnson, Phil Napoleon and users of Fletcher Henderson’s Orchestra. Strangely enough Smith didn’t record after 1925 until 1938 when she going an all-star jazz group (including Sidney Bechet, Charlie Shavers and Sammy Cost) using one session; furthermore in 1939 she cut “No Great Man” having a music group including Crimson Allen and Barney Bigard. But by enough time she passed on at age 48 in 1943, Trixie Smith was mainly forgotten.
