Bland, Condon, Banks' Rhythmakers

Billy Banks
Many people thought Billy Banks vocals on these recordings were by Una Mae Carlisle. Banks, was a female impersonator in vaudeville.

These all-star recording sessions were released under a variety of different names that tagged the names of Jack BlandEddie Condon and Billy Banks in front of the word Rhythmakers. Some companies just released the records as the Rhythmakers. In 1938 Pee Wee Russell also released some records as Pee Wee Russell and his Rhythmakers.

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.

Syncopated Times Radio

New Trad Jazz & Swing releases, interviews, live concerts, and a full roster of radio hosts.
