Lee Morse and her Southern Serenaders
Lee Morse and her Southern SerenadersLee Morse was a very unique singer. The song “What Do I Care What) Somebody Said?” is a good example of her style. Her improvised vocalease break on the tune combines strange yodel-like yelps with her great swinging, Blues flavored delivery. She released dozens of other records like this under the name of Lee Morse and her Bluegrass Boys.

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.
