It's also exciting to note how influential these old recordings have been on the young generation of great traditional jazz musicians - particularly in New Orleans. For example, Tuba Skinny manage to pick out from the long lists of material tunes that are perfectly suited to their style and to Erika's voice in particular.
On one of Document's CDs, there are eleven songs performed in the 1920s by Mandy Lee. What do we know about Mandy Lee? Who was she? It has been suggested that 'Mandy Lee' was just a name given to an artist (or even more than one artist - certainly it is difficult to be sure that all eleven songs are sung by the same voice). I suppose it's one of those mysteries never to be solved.
