Thanks to all who replied - I hadn't even considered Jo Trent as part of the equation and the fact that J Russell-Robinson is in the frame under a pseudonymalan504450
Incidentally, Jo Trent was one of the few black lyricists of the 1920s and 1930s to regularly collaborate with white composers (most notably Peter DeRose) ascharlton_nd
Indeed, Joe Hoover was a pseudonym for J. Russell Robinson. And this particular Trent was Jo Trent, a fairly prolific lyricist in the 1920s, not Alphonsecharlton_nd
It was named after the Red Hot Jazz Archives, with kind permission of Scott Alexander.
However, Scott vanished from the group years ago, and the RHJ website has been unattended ever since ; we are aware that some audio files are no longer available, but we have no power to fix this, and would appreciate getting in touch with the webmaster again.
We suggest visitors of the RHJ Archive to check the number of valid and invalid audio files for each page at Hot Jazz Files before suspecting their own system or software.
A separate group, for which no subscription is required, welcomes questions and contributions regarding the technical aspects of the website : RHJ-Tech.
