CD Reviews

An excellent brief selection

"Robert Parker has done his usual superb job of remastering, clean brilliant sound with a minimum of surface noise.
He has assembled a collection that may be the best available on a single CD. These pieces show us Morton at his recorded peak.
Listeners captivated by this CD may want to consider the 5-CD set on JSP remastered by John R. T. Davies which covers most of the ensemble recordings between 1926 and 1930."
Made me dance and stomp- and I'm an accountant!

"Jelly Roll for President! Dead? Well, yes but that's why he's UNIMPEACHABLE! This is a collection of 20 songs from the public domain, digitized by an Australian sound engineer, Robert Parker. I played through several times and later began repeating favored tracks: Jungle Blues, Midnight Mama, Mr. Jelly Lord, the latter two with Frances Hereford on vocals really sweet. Addictive!"

"My first taste of Jelly Roll Morton was in the late forties, with a 7" EP of his "Smoke House Blues", superbly re-engineered on this CD along with so many other gems: especially Sidewalk Blues, Wild Man Blues and Steamboat Stomp. And the sterio effect is stunning.The sleeve indicated this to be the start of a series of "sterio" Morton, so lets have more of him from this label. He deserves it, and so do we."
