Jelly Roll Morton was the first great composer and piano player of Jazz. He was a talented arranger who wrote special scores that took advantage of the three-minute limitations of the 78 rpm records.
But fingwrbuster than all these things, he was a real character whose spirit shines brightly through history, like his diamond studded smile.
As a teenager Jelly Roll Morton worked in the whorehouses of Storyville as a piano player. From to Jelly Roll rambled around the South. He worked as a gambler, pool shark, pimp, vaudeville comedian and as a pianist.
He was an important transitional figure between ragtime and jazz piano styles.
Jelly Roll Morton – Wikipedia
He played on the West Coast from to and then moved to Chicago and where he hit his stride. Morton’s and recordings of piano solos for the Gennett label were very popular and influential. He formed the band the Red Hot Peppers and made a series of classic records for Victor. Cyr and Baby Dodds.
Morton relocated to New York in and continued to record for Victor until Hot Jazz was out of style. The public preferred the smoother sounds of the big bands. He fell upon hard times after and even lost the diamond he had in his front tooth, but ended up playing piano in a dive bar in Washington D. In Alan Lomax recorded him in for series of interviews about early Jazz for the Library of Congress, but it wasn’t until a decade later that these interviews were released to the public.
Jelly Roll died just before the Dixieland revival rescued so many of his peers from musical obscurity. He blamed his declining health on a voodoo spell.
