Jeanne Burns: The great jazz singer that few know of…….. Part two

Jeanne Burns made very few recordings though she was also a composer and wrote for Billie Holiday. One of them is “I got a Need for You” which she recorded with Adrian Rollini and his Tap Room Boys in 1935, a song which I have posted about before. I just love her voice. Another is the excellent Jazz-O-Jazz. To hear the track click here. Here’s a piece about the National Sound Archive where I did some research on Jeanne Burns career.
