CD Reviews

Jelly Roll was brilliant!
Candace Scott | Lake Arrowhead, CA, USA | 08/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you have any interest in jazz or music of the 20's and 30's, you have to sample Jelly Roll Morton. Paul Whiteman may cut it for awhile, but eventually you'll look to greater variety and musicianship, which Morton displays here in spades. None of these cuts are dated, just listen to "Black Bottom Stomp," a timeless jazz classic which will set your toes a-tapping. This collection represents Morton at his best, before his decline. You won't regret buying this and it may turn you on to an entirely new (and unappreciated genre...) 1920's jazz."
Long Live Jelly Roll!

"For the money, this is an excellent introductory collection of recordings by Jelly Roll Morton. The dates of this set span from 1926-1929. All but two tracks (Deep Creek & Red Hot Pepper) are performed with his red hot peppers. For someone new to early jazz and/or Morton, this set is an excellent starting point. All the tracks are easy to listen two and never get dull."
