This Richard M. Jones group also recorded under the name of Richard M. Jones’ Three Jazz Wizards. The term Hottentot refers to the name of a group of tribes in Southwestern Africa -e.g. Angola, whose language is noted for its clicking sounds. In the early part of the 1900s Hottentot was a slang term for light-skinned African-Americans.
