Blues vocalist, stand-up pianist and occasionaly organist, Betty Hall Jones worked with Bus Moten's band and Addie Williams in Kansas City. Returning to California, she performed as a single artist before joining drummer/vocalist Roy Milton's band in L.A. in 1937. She almost certainly recorded on piano behind Alton Redd for the Black & White label in 1945, and accompanied Luke Jones on the Atlas recording sessions, and possibly with Red Mack for the same label in 1946 and 1947.
In the same year she recorded with King Porter for Imperial label (the trmendous "That Early Morning Boogie" included on this CD) and under her own name for Atomic, Capitol and under Luke Jones' name for Modern. She recalled cutting unissued titles behind Ray Charles for Capitol.
In the 1950's she recorded for Dootone and Combo.
