Sophie Tucker acc. by Miff Mole's MolersSophie Tucker who billed herself as “The Last Of The Red Hot Mammas” was one of the most popular singers of the Teens and 1920s. Her style is rarely considered to be Jazz, but rather harked back to the “Coon Shouter” or Ragtime vocal style. Occasionally she employed Jazz bands to back her up on her records and and in her live performances. In the case of these records she was accompanied by an all-star line up under the name of Miff Mole’s Molers.

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.
