Edith Wilson and Johnny Dunn's Jazz Hounds
Edith Wilson Johnny Dunn Jazz HoundsEdith Wilson and trumpet player Johnny Dunn first worked together in the musical revue “Put And Take” in 1921 and then went on to perform in Lew Lesile’s Plantation Revue in 1922. The group toured the TOBA vaudville circuit in 1921.

Perry Bradford set up the recording sessions at Columbia for Wilson to compete with the Okeh’s Mamie Smith’s Jazz Hounds records. Instrumental records were also released without Wilson under the name of Johnny Dunn and his Original Jazz Hounds. Dunn had also been a member of Mamie Smith’s Jazz Hounds.

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.
