New Orleans Rhythm Kings and Jelly Roll Morton

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This single CD reissues all of the music on the earlier double LP of the same title and catalog number, except for some alternate takes, although it confuses matters a bit by adding a "new" alternate of "Milenberg Joys." The New Orleans Rhythm Kings were the best group on record during 1922, and all of its earliest recordings are on this essential release.

The recordings on the CD include sessions as an octet, a quintet, and a tentet. Some of the latter performances showcase the innovative pianist/composer Jelly Roll Morton. Highlights include "Tiger Rag," "Maple Leaf Rag," the original versions of "Farewell Blues," "That's a Plenty," "Bugle Call Rag," and "Tin Roof Blues" the latter having Brunies' most famous trombone solo, plus the Morton sides including "Clarinet Marmalade," "Mr. Jelly Lord," and "Milenberg Joys". Classic and historic music.
