The best way to acquire Jelly Roll Morton 's classic Victor recordings is on a five-CD set put out by Bluebird that includes all of the alternate takes. But listeners who do not care about alternates may find the Morton CDs in the European Classics series to be as satisfying. This particular CD actually starts off with 14 selections that predate the Victors.
Several of the early selections such as the first four numbers, which include cornetist Lee Collins and trombonist Roy Palmer and "Soap Suds" are a bit disappointing due to the low-level recording quality. Morton is heard with his finest group, a septet with cornetist George Mitchell , trombonist Kid Ory , and clarinetist Omer Simeon.
The contradictions may stem from different definitions of the terms ragtime and jazz. These interviews, released in different forms over the years, were released on an eight-CD boxed set in , The Complete Library of Congress Recordings. The collection won two Grammy Awards. In , Morton was stabbed by a friend of the Music Box's owner and suffered wounds to the head and chest.
A nearby whites-only hospital refused to treat him, as the city had racially segregated facilities. He was transported to a black hospital farther away. His recovery from his wounds was incomplete, and thereafter he was often ill and easily became short of breath. After this incident, his wife, Mabel, demanded that they leave Washington. Worsening asthma sent him to a New York hospital for three months at one point.
He continued to suffer from respiratory problems when visiting Los Angeles with a series of manuscripts of new tunes and arrangements, planning to form a new band and restart his career. According to the jazz historian David Gelly in , Morton's arrogance and "bumptious" persona alienated so many musicians over the years that no colleagues or admirers attended his funeral.
Morton's piano style was formed from early secondary ragtime and "shout", which also evolved separately into the New York school of stride piano. Morton's playing was also close to barrelhouse , which produced boogie-woogie. Morton often played the melody of a tune with his right thumb, while sounding a harmony above these notes with other fingers of the right hand.
This added a rustic or "out-of-tune" sound due to the playing of a diminished 5th above the melody. This may still be recognized as belonging to New Orleans. Morton also walked in major and minor sixths in the bass, instead of tenths or octaves. He played basic swing rhythms with both the left and the right hand. Jelly Lord". In the big-band era, his "King Porter Stomp", which Morton had written decades earlier, was a big hit for Fletcher Henderson and Benny Goodman ; it became a standard covered by most other swing bands of that time.
Morton claimed to have written some tunes that were copyrighted by others, including " Alabama Bound "  and " Tiger Rag ". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
American ragtime and jazz pianist, bandleader and composer. During his interviews with Alan Lomax, Jelly Roll Morton paints a picture of life on the road as a musician during the first two decades of the 20th century as romantic, but often violent and chaotic. He describes his skills as a pool shark. He used his piano playing to win over his prospective marks, before winning all of their money at pool. He also describes one of his early mentor's Porter King , who inspired one of Morton's most famous compositions, 'King Porter Stomp' written in Morton explains that he does not quite know why songs of the era where called 'stomps' except that audiences would often stomp their feet to accompany the tunes.
Beginning around , Jelly Roll Morton traveled around the Deep South playing his tunes, soaking up influences from other musicians, and apparently hustling people at pool. He eventually made his way further north to Memphis, St.
Louis, and Kansas City. In , he relocated to Chicago where many of his most significant tracks were recorded. Assembling a band called the Red Hot Peppers, Morton recorded historic tracks for the well-known record label Victor. Significant tracks from his era include, 'Wolverine Blues' and 'Grandpas' Spells.
By the early s, Morton had made his way to New York City where he played with numerous important jazz musicians, but experienced only moderate success. Jelly Roll Morton's old time New Orleans style of jazz had fallen somewhat out of fashion by the s, and Morton struggled to find an audience. In , Morton relocated once again to Washington D. C where he began managing a club. It was in Washington D.
In , Lomax recorded the series of interviews and performances for the Library of Congress that are now understood to be deeply important documents of early jazz history. Although samples of his collection had been released previously, they were not released in their entirety until under the name 'The Complete Library of Congress Recordings.
Not long after the Library of Congress recordings, Morton was stabbed during an altercation at the club that he managed. Morton received inadequate treatment for his wounds at the racially segregated Washington D.
