Ma Rainey acc. by The Pruitt Twins
Ma Rainey acc. by The Pruitt TwinsParamount advertised this beautiful record as a new, sensational and different souvenir record claiming it was first record to feature a picture of artist on the label. The advertising copy for this record stated,

Ma Rainey wants you all to have a souvenir record with her picture. The famous Mother of the Blues doesn’t want you ever to forget her- that’s how much she loves her friends!”

Miles and Milas Pruitt were guitar playing twins from Kansas City. They also accompanied Lottie Beaman, Charlie Turner and Ida Cox on a few of their 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.

Syncopated Times Radio

New Trad Jazz & Swing releases, interviews, live concerts, and a full roster of radio hosts.
