No one really believes these claims, but it's amazing how much truth there is to them. His early RCA Victor recordings laid much of the music's foundation, particularly the Chicago "Red Hot Peppers" recordings, and Morton himself has been hailed as the first great jazz composer in a long tradition of composers that include Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, and Wayne Shorter. Simply put, you can't say enough about the greatness and the importance of Morton's music.
This collection by JSP is an absolute godsend. Originally a British import that received poor circulation in the U. First, alternate takes are place on separate discs RCA stacks them on top of the Georgia Swing - Jelly Roll Morton - Jelly Roll Morton: 1926-1930 takewhich makes for better listening. Second, the JSP box is much less expensive. Third and most important of all is sound quality. RCA's box set was released inand like all it's reissues of that era, it was heavily processed with NoNoise, leaving a squeaky clean sound, but with the high and low end frequencies lopped off.
Furthermore, good sources weren't always secured by RCA, so many tracks on their set were taken from analogue tape copies of old source material. The overall result was a muffled, heavily compressed sound that squeezed the life out Renunciaré - Golpes Bajos - .Y La 1/2 Del Otro the music.
It was all the more depressing considering that the music was recorded extraordinarily well for their time. With this JSP box set, Davies secured superior sources, including some rare 78 rpm records from private collections. Furthermore, noise reduction was very minimal, which means there's more surface noise on these CD's, but the liveliness of the sound is simply amazing.
Simply put, there's absolutely no reason to buy "The Centennial" box set when you have this beauty available. Much of this music is essential to any jazz collection, and this box set from JSP is absolutely the best way to attain it. Great music, amazing sound quality, and a great bargain. The music played by Morton in the 20's ranked 2nd to none, although there was no soloist of Armstrong's calibre in his bands there was only ONE Armstrong!
Morton skills as an arranger, composer and pianist were above everyone else during this period. There are the all time classics Georgia Swing - Jelly Roll Morton - Jelly Roll Morton: 1926-1930 as Doctor Jazz, Dead Man blues, and the tracks with the great clarinettist Johnny Dodds the last eight tracks.
Dodds presence added something extra to what was already great music. The last two tracks offer a chance to hear Morton the pianist - as he is joined only by the Dodds brothers.
The 2nd CD offers anything from piano solos to a semi big band, recorded in Instead of Dodds we have the opportunity to hear Barney Bigard and Zutty Singleton, two other New Orleans giants, join Morton for a trio on the last four tracks. There are also highlights featuring a band with Henry Allen, J.
The 3rd CD was recorded duringand is actually the last CD of the box set, as the remaing two CD's contain alternative takes of songs that appear in the first three. I love "Harmony Blues", "Ponchatrain" - to me this is just outstanding music. CD's 4 and 5 are alternative takes of some of the best songs. They offer a chance to see how much of the music was actually improvised and how much was written down. Overall - for its musical depths, it historic value, its great remastering, and the very reasonable price - this is HIGHLY recommended.
John Steadman Productions. He is famous in the record world for surreptiously recording concerts he has produced over the years and releasing the material on his label without either paying royalties or making any attempt at getting any permission from the artists he has. The list is very long.
He has been called the "British Don Robey" and is so reviled in London he has to have a bodyguard. Beware JSP records. It's a shame this man gets away with what he does. Acquire, please legitimate discs, which no doubt will adorn your collection!
