Jane Green was a popular singer and broadway actress in the 1920s. Jane’s recording career started in 1920. She appeared on Broadway that same year and again from1923 on. In the mid-1920’s Jane was at her performance and popularity peek. However, things went down-hill in the late 1920’s. In 1927 that year Jane was seriously injured in New York City when the taxi she was riding in struck a streetcar. Jane’s nose had been broken and this affected her vocals. In June 1928 Jane appeared in a couple of "Vitaphone Varieties" film shorts - "Singin’ The Blues" and "The Melody Girl". Little is known of Jane’s activities during 1929 and 1930 although she was heard on the "Ship of Joy" radio program in Los Angeles in 1929 and in 1931 performing on the radio show "The Golden State Blue Monday Jamboree" on KFRC. On August 28, 1931 Jane died at the young age of 34 in her Berkeley apartment. Later obituaries note that she died of a paralytic stroke. This was not sufficiently substantiated to some observers who note the strange behavior of her husband Ron. This brilliant record was made in 1927.

My pleasure, Dario; I guess it has to do with the very harsh circumstances lately, I hear about so many misty claims by real but I suspect even more supposedly owners. It is such a wonderful song, of which Jane probably recorded the greatest version ever.

Absolutely Genia, both singers were contemporary artist and undoubtedly had stylistic characteristics in common. She's considered among the very best vocalists of her generation.

She reminds me a little of Lee Morse in her singing style.

Definitely one of the best singers of the era and one of the major influences on my style of singing.
