Billie & De De Pierce

Pianist Billie Pierce and cornetist De De Pierce made a charming and music duo since these were married in 1935. Billie was an excellent barrelhouse pianist and blues vocalist, while De De performed fundamental but effective cornet and was also a separate vocalist. Although Billie (who got worked well previously with Friend Petit and George Lewis) and De De documented an recording for Middle in 1953, both of the Pierces had been somewhat obscure in to the early ’60s. De De proceeded to go blind within the ’50s and retired for a while, but by 1959, he was back action because the Pierces documented for Folklyric. Additional classes for Jazzology, Riverside, and American Music (the second option released posthumously in 1996) presented the Pierces at their finest. These were also mixed up in early Preservation Hall Jazz Music group, documenting for Atlantic (a 1962 day with George Lewis), the Preservation Hall label and Rarities.
