Example text

In one of the conversations included here, Johnson speaks of composing Baby, I'd love to steal you in collaboration with the legendary Tony Jackson, then plays it on the piano — and it sounds like Edwardian drawing-room music. More importantly, he claimed to have played with the still more legendary Bolden, and moved his birth date back about ten years to substantiate this [7]. His assertion is not supported by anyone else active in New Orleans during the early years of this century, and there is no reason to assume that his illustrations of Bolden's style, whether by whistling in the first interview or in the trumpet performances accompanied by Bertha Gonsoulin, are accurate as musicological reconstructions.

There follows the celebrated and no doubt very personal analysis of Tiger rag in terms of its supposed sources in French dance music, and a volatile performance of the famous number full of imitative orchestral effects, as evident, but far more subtle than the tiger's savage elbow-roars. Similarly representative of Morton's orchestral style is the subsequent treatment of Panama, perennial favourite of New Orleans marching bands, which is splendidly played by the Young Tuxedo Brass Band on 18 in a manner which must recall the band music that captured this pianist's imagination long ago.

Mainly they are played as written, although the tango rhythm of the Panama arrangement is changed and Kellin naturally includes the famous clarinet solo in High society [4]. Besides such jazz pieces and the rags, they also perform cakewalks like Creole belles, marches, blues and waltzes. Good stereo recording helpfully separates the parts and reveals the sometimes picturesque detail of these interpretations, such as ORIGINS 19 Russell's portamentos on New Orleans hop scop blues which echo the 'glide' and 'slide' of the lyrics.
