Art Hickman's New York London Five
San Francisco bandleader Art Hickman was enjoying considerable success in New York with his Art Hickman Orchestra in 1921 when he was offered an engagement in London, England by band booker Harry Yerkes.

Hickman’s Orchestra couldn’t make the trip because they were providing the music for Ziegfeld’s Follies, but Hickman allowed Yerkes to use his name and Yerkes assembled a group of musicians to perform under the name of Art Hickman’s New York London Five. This band played at the Criterion Roof Garden in London from 1920 and 1921 according to Mark Berresford.

Redhotjazz.com was a pioneering website during the "Information wants to be Free" era of the 1990s. In that spirit we are recovering the lost data from the now defunct site and sharing it with you.
Most of the music in the archive is in the form of MP3s hosted on Archive.org or the French servers of Jazz-on-line.com where this music is all in the public domain.
Files unavailable from those sources we host ourselves. They were made from original 78 RPM records in the hands of private collectors in the 1990s who contributed to the original redhotjazz.com. They were hosted as .ra files originally and we have converted them into the more modern MP3 format. They are of inferior quality to what is available commercially and are intended for reference purposes only. In some cases a Real Audio (.ra) file from Archive.org will download. Don't be scared! Those files will play in many music programs, but not Windows Media Player.
