In 1910 Honore Dutrey (c. 1894 in New Orleans, Louisiana – July 21, 1935 in Chicago, Illinois) started playing trombone in various bands in New Orleans, including Jimmie Noone’s outfit. In 1917 he joined the Navy and was involved in an accident that permanently damaged his lungs causing him to suffer from asthma that eventually took his life. From 1920 to 1924 he played trombone with King Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band, Carrol Dickerson, Johnny Dodds and Louis Armstrong’s Stompers at the Sunset Cafe at 313-17 East 35th Street at the corner of Calmet Street in Chicago.
Redhotjazz.com was a pioneering website during the "Information wants to be Free" era of the late 1990s. In that spirit we are recovering the lost data from the now defunct site and sharing it with you here for free, outside of our paywall. Red Hot Jazz was a resource and an inspiration and it shouldn't be lost. Like the original Redhotjazz.com this is a labor of love done in our free time. New entries are added daily. "Completion" is estimated by March 2021 but it will always be a work in progress. Most title links are to downloadable Real Audio files except where an MP3 file was available from Jazz-On-Line.com
