Review By Derrick Davey,Fine Music,May 2007

Jelly Roll Morton was a colourful character—a dandy, gambler, pimp, club manager and braggart who was described as being so crooked that he couldn’t lie straight in bed. He was also one of the best ragtime pianists in the early 1900s and, more importantly, was one fo the best and most successful early jazz composers and arrangers.

Although a professional pianist from about 1900, he did not record until 1923, and in the following seven years made many records for the Victor Company, establishing himself as the best of the early New Orleans style composers/arrangers. Now Naxos Jazz Legends has released twenty recordings from this period; five piano solos and fifteen featuring the Red Hot Peppers.


All Naxos Historical, Naxos Classical Archives, Naxos Jazz, Folk and Rock Legends and Naxos Nostalgia titles are not available
in the United States and some titles may not be available in Australia and Singapore because these countries have copyright laws
that provide or may provide for terms of protection for sound recordings that differ from the rest of the world.
