Valaida Snow: Charismatic ‘Queen of the Trumpet’

Paywall ....

 

Anyway ... she wasn't that overlooked in Europe. More like a "cult figure" to collectors. Reissues (mostly from the UK) have been around since some time in the 70s.

And this book looks like an interesting read and analysis:

FWIW, Valaida DID get an obit in the June, 1956 issue of ORKESTER JOURNALEN from Sweden. The obit was brief but at any rate twice as long as the obit of Adrian Rollini reported in the same issue.
