Frank: Jelly recorded this himself - check it it out at iTunes . . . Jelly Roll Morton's Last Sessions. No real reason to listen to some else do it when the guy who wrote recorded it - AND anyone can get it (not to knock someone's VERSION of it). Get it from the horse's mouth. I have it (and another version by the Aces of Syncopation) on my iPod. DAVE
I just dug out my CD . . . Jelly Roll Morton LAST SESSIONS The Complete General Recordings, Commodore; a compilation issued by GRP Records, NY.
I'd forgotten how good this material is . . . no saxophone, but Jelly himself singing a bunch of his stuff and his piano playing, some with a back-up band, from around 1940. If you buy this CD (I suspect Amazon has it, but I haven't verified it) check out MAMIE'S BLUES (aka 2:19 BLUES). Great stuff, alright. DAVE
Not at all Dave. I'll check out the original Jelly Roll tunes. Somehow "Why" wasn't the style I would have associated with Jelly Roll MOrton. I thought since this was the transcription/sheet music thread, it would have been assumed I wanted the music.
