Jelly Roll Morton: As Artist

Jelly Roll Morton: As Artist
Title: As Artist
Label: JSP Records

Braggart, womaniser, sometime drunk, spendthrift... genius. Jelly Roll Morton had a lifestyle that would leave the most hedonistic of modern rock stars breathless. The difference, dare we say it, is that Morton was endowed with an almost limitless musical talent. So when he and his fellow musicians got into the studio they did what they were there for... they made music. No overdubs. No thirty minute star solos. No self-indulgent time-outs. And what a job they did! Seventy years after they were cut, these recordings will still impress you with their freshness and originality. If you're a fan, you'll know all this already. But fan or not, you're in for a revelation. Remastering that borders on the obsessive has released sounds not heard since these important recordings were first made. American musical history pure and simple. Unlike Mr Jelly Lord.
