Early Jazz: Jelly Roll Morton

Jelly Roll Morton claimed to be the inventor of Jazz. Well, that might not be totally accurate but he certainly was there over a 100 years ago when the basic elements of Jazz, a mutation from Ragtime and Blues just clicked together. Tonight we will go through his interesting legacy of recordings including piano rolls.
