LA Times: Clora Bryant, who broke barriers as a jazz trumpet player, dies at 92September 5, 2019 / No Comments
Had she been a singer, she might have been an American star. Had she been a piano player, record labels might have lined up to sign her.

“When you put that iron in your mouth, you run into problems,” Bryant told The Times in a 1998 interview. “The other horn players gave me respect, but the men who ran the clubs considered me a novelty.”
