Interesting to have Jelly's piano rolls re-imagined on a modern piano. But ultimately the rhythms and accents are quite unlike any with which we are familiar from the recordings he made (especially the Library of Congress ones). Here the music becomes a bit "novelty piano" in style. Flawed and a bit mechanical though the original roll recordings may be when dubbed onto my elderly LP (really!) I think I'll stick with them.

Fantastic re-recording!! 11 Nov. 2004
By madamemusico - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I am very familiar with these Morton piano rolls from their previous incarnations on Biograph, Pianola, and other indie jazz labels, and so am well aware of their assets and limitations. On one LP transfer, "Grandpa's Spells" sounded very natural and fluid, but there was no pedal used and so the thumping bass notes sounded odd and hollow. On the Biograph CD, "Shreveport Stomp" came out very well but, again, no pedal...and Morton was a master of pedal effects.

On this CD, Odis Wodehouse (I wonder if she's any relation to 1920s author P.G. Wodehouse??) has done a remarkable job of emulating Morton's touch, dynamics and pedal effects. Often I caught my breath listening, the immediacy of Morton's presence was so strong! Each and evry track sounds perfectly natural, and the wonderful presence makes every fingering detail stand out.

And what's so wrong about listening to Morton on a Steinway grand??? That's what he played at the Library of Congress in 1938, and no one has complained about those discs!!

Not really satisfactory 13 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The trouble with these rolls is that they were recorded in the cheaper way, without any dynamics, unlike the expensive rolls by Rachmaninoff and other classical pianists. Ms Wodehouse has attempted to supply the missing dynamics, but the result doesn't sound at all like Morton's playing as you can hear it on the JSP set or the Lomax recordings. It is more like, perhaps, Dick Hyman playing Morton's music. Also, a big concert grand doesn't seem very suitable for this music.
To hear Morton play in such clarity is a gift. 25 May 2014

What more could you ask for than to hear 'Jelly Roll' Morton himself playing the piano, sounding so clear that you would think he was in your living room? I can't say anything more suitable than that. Buy this.
Good recording. 5 Mar. 2015

All I can say is that these are good rolls, and they were professionally recorded.

For road trips, this CD is much more convenient than putting a piano in your car.

Recomendo 2 Sept. 2007
By John Lester - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Uma das figuras mais geniais e polêmicas da história do jazz foi Jelly Roll Morton, considerado por vários estudiosos o primeiro compositor do jazz. Morton, um mulato de New Orleans que se considerava branco descendente de franceses, iniciou a carreira tocando em bordéis e esteve em quase todas as cidades onde se podia ganhar algum dinheiro tocando jazz. Costumava se apresentar com um cartão onde constava a inscrição "inventor do jazz". Se ele realmente acreditava nisso ou estava apenas brincando, nunca vamos saber. O fato é que Morton foi o primeiro músico a conseguir colocar na partitura alguns dos principais elementos musicais que realmente diferenciavam o jazz de seus ancestrais: spirituals, blues e ragtime. Para aqueles que não apreciam gravações repletas de estalidos e chiados, o disco abaixo traz registros feitos em 1924 em rolos de pianola cujo tratamento técnico torna a audição agradável até para as orelhas mais exigentes. Um prato cheio para os estudiosos do jazz.
