Overview

Pianist James Dapogny and his octet (plus a few guests) pay tribute to the immortal pianist/composer/arranger Jelly Roll Morton on this enjoyable set. They perform 17 of Morton's compositions, often with a twist. Six of the songs were never recorded by Jelly Roll's groups (such as "Frog-I-More Rag," "Milenberg Joys" and "King Porter Stomp"), and most of those that were are given fresh arrangements in the style of Morton's Red Hot Peppers. Dapogny's regular octet (with trumpeter Jon-Erik Kellso and the reeds of Kim Cusack and Russ Whitman) is joined on some numbers by Peter Ferran's reeds, cornetist Paul Klinger and Mike Walbridge's tuba. This is classic music that, due to the new arrangements, sounds intriguingly unpredictable.
