but I must admit that this book was necessary and mandatory to be precise; discover the morton rythm and harmony is as nervous as brilliant...
It is a pleasure to hear the jelly roll morton pieces with a clean sound, it makes a second life to the old records that we deal with today ^^
bravo to him, so self-possessed and assured in its excellent style.
A must !
Many of these transcriptions are a bit beyond my ability, but it's fun to keep trying. Some reviewers have mentioned being in the same boat. For them (us, that is) I recommend the George Hoefer edited book in the Golden Series, of which mine is (so far) the only customer review. Most of my playing is from this --- its pieces are within my capabilities. It's currently available on Amazon for less than $10.
