Jelly Roll Morton had a hit with his 1923 version of Wolverine Blues. This stirred interest with the the Victor company who were just starting to get into the "race records" market and were looking for talent. Jelly Roll assembled a group of musicians who could play in the New Orleans style and called them the Red Hot Peppers. Many of the musicians came from Lil Hardin-Armstrong's recently disbanded Dreamland Syncopators. The tracks recorded in Chicago in 1926 and 1927 are considered some of the finest recordings in the "Hot Style". Photo:Jelly Roll Morton and His Red.
