      An album worth adding to the collection

      Jelly Roll Morton's claim of being the person who invented jazz may seem to appear slightly extreme but frankly - someone had to and as one of the earliest jazz artists around, there's no reason why he can't stake his claim. Modesty may not have been his forte but music certainly was and although I'm not taken with modern day jazz, I'm quite a fan of the early sounds and Jelly Roll Morton gives it a distinctively ragtime sound that I found pleasant on the ears. His piano playing is awesome and he leads an extremely tight band that make it sound as if there are much more of them than you'd expect. I find that with the older artists, a complete discography is always a good thing to have a listen to and from there you can create your own CD or move your favourite tracks over to an Mp3 player, a lot of early blues and jazz compilations by one artist tend to be overloaded with different versions of the same track, this isn't the case with this wonderful box set that rarely repeats a track over a phenomenal 5 discs of Morton's music from 26-30. As you may have guessed this has pretty much every song he made before and during this period from the famous "Jelly Roll Blues" that gave him his name (having played piano in a brothel from the age of 14, he should know more about jelly rolls than most!) through to the final numbers that were recorded before he was dropped by his record label in 1931 due to The Depression.
