August 29, 1924 December 14, 1963

Dinah Washington has been called, among recording artists, the 1950s' most popular black female. By 1993 she was made a Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer.

Born Ruth Lee Jones, she would go on to record with Ben Webster, Clifford Brown, Duke Ellington and Count Basie. She even appeared at the 1956 Newport Jazz Festival, the legendary occasion that a Johnny Gonsalves solo helped to turn the Duke's career around.
