Morton, Jelly Roll – “Jelly Roll Morton 1938, 1940″ – [Alamac]

Jelly Roll Morton was born approx. 1885 in New Orleans to a Creole family. He had great success with the Red Hot Peppers in the 1920???s, but these recordings were made toward the end of his life in 1938 and 1940.

Recording quality is okay to poor but Morton???s skill on piano shines through. Side musicians were relatively unknown locals, but nice trumpet work from Dick Bird on side 1.

Traditional, ???tickle the ivories??? jazz.
