5.0 out of 5 stars The Genius At Work January 10, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This stunning CD is an embarassment of riches (actually,I'd give it 10 stars easily);the evolution of Morton's musical vision grew rapidly from 1924 on and the opening 4 tracks by a 1924 band enable us to hear the intricacies of Morton's polyphonic art at work,indeed,the other half of this CD is taken up by the superb 1926 Red Hot Peppers sides where Morton at last nailed it down definitively and this CD allows you to compare and contrast the 1924 AND 1926 sides back to back to study Morton's growth.But this CD is far from just study material into a great musical mind,- there's plenty of remarkable (and memorable)music here,from the beautiful clarinet obligatto in "High Society" (1924)to the almost Baroque opening cadenza of "The Chant"(1926) and on with revisions of "The Pearls" and "Wolverine Blues" to boot.The remastering (like all the Classics series)is above-average and there's enough revelation AND pleasure here to make this CD a sinfully affordable treasure.Be the first on your block to order your's now.Thanks to Amazon for performing such a service to the Jazz community by making CDs like this as widely and easily available as possible for all!

Whoever coined the term "Jazz is timeless" had to have had the pioneering pianist/composer Jelly Roll Morton uppermost in mind. Born Ferdinand Joseph Lemott (LaMothe) in New Orleans on October 20, 1890 (died in Los Angeles at age 51 on July 10, 1941), his Jazz piano led a dizzying array of aggregations over the course of his relatively brief career while recording prolifically for an equally-dizzying array of labels. And virtually all of that output is contained in the 7 volumes covering Jelly Roll in Gilles Pétard's massive Chronological Classics series.

This citizen of France, where Jazz is revered like no other nation, set out in 1989 to ambitiously re-release as many of the 78-rpm Jazz/Big Band (Swing) selections as he could, each with detailed and informative inserts/discography, before eventually going bankrupt in 2004 after producing close to 1,000 volumes. From the outset these were available, at a rate of about five a month, only through a subscription process, starting with the First Lady Of Jazz Ella Fitzgerald. The volumes covering Jelly-Roll are: 1923-24; 1924-26; 1926-28; 1928-29; 1929-30; 1930-39; and 1939-40, and in total these will give you 158 sides, many of them re-recordings over the years of favorites like Mr. Jelly Lord and Wolverine Blues, as well as his 4 that made the national singles charts in 1927/28 and their B-sides.
