JAMES P. JOHNSON

Totaling nearly six hours this is an in-depth examination of the life, music and genius of a brilliant technician and overlooked composer: from his piano rolls and early classic, “The Charleston” through his mastery of Harlem Stride piano, to exploration of theatrical and symphonic forms, this is an exhaustive consideration of Johnson, from recordings old and new.

Jelly Roll Morton created a large body of early Jazz tunes, sheet music and recordings that summed up the best of New Orleans Jazz.  He composed a great deal of terrific music making a vast number of recordings of mostly superior musical quality for their day during a career spanning from the early, early days in New Orleans (before the year 1900) to 1941.

He was one of the most gifted musicians from New Orleans to attain worldwide fame -- though more so after his death than during his life.  Morton was possibly the best musician of the 1920s at achieving an ideal symmetry between structure and improvisation.  His records skillfully balance between song structure and improvised group polyphony -- and between ensemble and solo improvisation.

A peculiar and fascinating character, Jelly Roll was a gifted musician, major jazz pianist & composer, and helped shape Classic Jazz in the 1920s.  His music, particularly his piano style, can be seen a bridge -- the missing link if you will -- between Ragtime, the music that preceded jazz in the late 19th century, and the classic jazz style that emerged in the 1920s.
