Ferdinand Joseph LaMothe (October 20, 1890 – July 10, 1941), known professionally as Jelly Roll Morton, was an American ragtime and early jazz pianist, bandleader and composer who started his career in New Orleans, Louisiana. Widely recognized as a pivotal figure in early jazz, Morton was jazz's first arranger, proving that a genre rooted in improvisation could retain its essential spirit and characteristics when notated.

Complete your Jelly Roll Morton collection.

April 20, 1926 - December 16, 1939. While the pundits may argue endlessly whether or not this 24-track collection is truly the best of Jelly Roll Morton, it does bring together a large chunk of the landmark recordings made with various units between 1926 and 1939. Starting off with a piano solo version of "King Porter Stomp," the next 16 tracks are all prime-period Red Hot Peppers material with "Sidewalk Blues," "Dead Man Blues," "Someday Sweetheart," "Jungle Blues," and "The Pearls" numbered among the highlights.

Jelly Roll Morton (1926-1939) from Jelly Roll Morton (1975) (LP). Jelly Roll Morton war Autodidakt, aber auch der erste, der diese Musik komplex aufnehmen konnte. Er handelte mit den Brüdern Melrose in Chicago 1926 Bedingungen aus, so dass er mit seinen Musikern auch bezahlte Proben hatte, bevor er den Kram einspielte. Zwar wurde er hinsichtlich der Komplexität des Materials von klassisch ausgebildeten Tonsetzern wie Fletcher Henderson und Duke Ellington zu Beginn der 1930er Jahre überholt, aber was den schieren Überschwang seiner schon komplex orchestrierten Musik anbelangt, sucht er weiter seinesgleichen.
