Charles Pierce and his Orchestra
Charles Pierce and his OrchestraCharles Pierce was an amateur saxophonist who was a professional butcher. It is said that despite his amateur status, he seemed to have a fair idea of the function of the tenor saxophone in small group jazz.

by Brian Rust (from the liner notes of Jazz From The Windy City 1927-1930 on Timeless Records)

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.
