Jelly Roll Plays Morton
Format: COMPACT DISC
Helga Plankensteiner Achille Succi Glauco Benedetti Michael Losch Marco Solda
The current work, JELLY ROLL PLAYS MORTON, explores one of the legendary figures of the origins of Jazz with splendid sensitivity. With her Jelly Roll Quintet, Helga Plankensteiner tackles Morton's splendid legacy with an attitude that on a first listen appears joyful, colorful, rich in moods and dynamics, with a few sprinklings of funk amid the rhythms of early 20th-century New Orleans.
