Jazz Appreciation 2

Convenor - Roy Thorogood

Venue - The Home of Keith Ballard in Theydon Bois

Day and Time of Meetings - 3rd Thursday monthly from 2.30pm to 4.30pm

Our next meeting on Thursday 16th January from 2.30 p.m. I continued the life story of Jelly Roll Morton. He told everyone who would listen 'I invented jazz back in 1905', which of course he did not. He did compose many of the New Orleans Jazz standards that we can hear to this day. He recorded from 1924 with piano solos through to 1940, when he passed away in 1941. His Library of Congress recordings with interviewer Alan Lomax in 1939 are legendary.

At our next meeting on Thursday 20th February, I will continue the life story of Jelly Roll Morton. After that I will be looking at the jazz musicians who played in thee Red Hot Peppers, such as Johnny and Baby Dodds and Kid Ory, who had career that went on into the 1970's.
