Product description

Product Description

A Document of the Big Bang of Jazz. New Orleans composer, pianist and pool shark Jelly Roll Morton was one of the key figures in the creation of jazz. Alan Lomax was the visionary folklorist who created a legacy that illuminated roots music sounds from around the world. Together, in 1938 at the Library of Congress, they made these groundbreaking recordings - the first recorded oral history in jazz. This riveting narrative is an essential document of American culture. This CD presents highlights from the 8 CD set, including several of Jelly Roll's solo piano performances of his best known compositions, and segments of his remarkable spoken story. Tracks: I'm Alabama Bound / King Porter Stomp / Jelly Roll's Background / Mr Jelly Lord / Stomping Grounds / The Anamule Dance Pt 1 / Tiger Rag / Panama / The Right Tempo Is The Accurate Tempo / Maple Leaf Rag / Jazz Discords And Story Of Kansas City Stomp / Kansas City Stomp / Wolverine Blues / The Spanish Tinge / The Crave / Sporting Attire And Shooting The Agate / Funeral Marches / How Jelly Roll Got His Name.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Jelly telling it like it was 11 April 2008
By HG Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The re-mastered sound is an enormous improvement over the older copy I have. Very good indeed! Morton was an irascible, contradictory genius. He had a lot of trouble just getting along with other musicians and record company people. This limited his output and certainly hurt his popularity and bottom line. Yet he was a pioneer in composition and arrangement, a marvelous player and singer, and while his struggles to get paid the royalties he was due probably made other companies leery of working with him, his efforts certainly helped later artists get a better deal. If you like his music, read a biography and by all means listen to his stories on the Library of Congress recordings. An unforgettable character and a major figure in jazz history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking! 23 Nov. 2011
By Vinnie Silvagio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
From the first second, one cannot help but be amazed at the sound quality of this disc. It is light years ahead of any previously released Jelly Roll material. If you love the master, this is a treasure you'll want to hear.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 25 Feb. 2013
By Devon - Published on Amazon.com

I understand New Orleans Jazz purists consider Jelly Roll one of the pioneers of jazz, but I just don't enjoy listening to it. Be sure to give it a preview before you buy a couple albums.
