From Library Journal:

Familiar to audiences in the 1980s as a regular performer at the Cookery in New York, Alberta Hunter actually had begun singing in public before the first World War and had achieved worldwide fame as a blues singer and entertainer from the 1920s to the 1940s. After a full career, she spent 20 years as a nurse before returning to singing in the late 1970s. Taylor, a journalist, and Cook, Hunter's pianist for the last years of her life, base this biography on her own reminiscences, interviews with old acquaintances, and letters and reviews she had saved. The discography of her recordings from 1921 to 1983 testifies to a long career. A convincing, appreciative, and well-rounded portrait.William Brockman, Drew Univ. Lib., Madison, N.J.
