From the All Music Guide:

Pianist Billie Pierce and cornetist De De Pierce made a charming and musical duo ever since they were married in 1935. Billie was a fine barrelhouse pianist and blues singer, while De De played basic but effective cornet and was also a passionate vocalist. Although Billie (who had worked previously with Buddy Petit and George Lewis) and De De recorded an album for Center in 1953, both of the Pierces were somewhat obscure into the early '60s. De De went blind in the '50s and retired for a time, but by 1959, he was back in action as the Pierces recorded for Folklyric. Further sessions for Jazzology, Riverside, and American Music (the latter released posthumously in 1996) featured the Pierces at their best. They were also involved in the early Preservation Hall Jazz Band, recording for Atlantic (a 1962 date with George Lewis), the Preservation Hall label and Rarities.

The Sound of Building Coffins

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
