Reel to Reel Recordings

Etta Jones was a marvelous vocalist with a long outstanding career, she is fondly remembered for her collaborations with Houston Person that endured almost 30 years. Etta was born in Aiken, South Carolina in 1928 and raised in Harlem. Like so many other African-American singers she began singing in the choir of her family’s church, she admired Billie Holiday and Dinah Washington as an adolescent. While still a teenager, the noted bandleader and composer Buddy Johnson took her on the road with his band to alternate vocals with Buddy’s sister Ella Johnson who also served as her guardian.
