Andrew Oliver/David Horniblow, Ken Mathieson’s Classic Jazz Orchestra

We launch our 40th Anniversary Celebrations with the man who “invented” jazz, Jelly Roll Morton. Cutting his musical teeth as a pianist and entertainer in the bordellos of New Orleans, he could claim to be the first composer and arranger in jazz. He wrote the music that popularised the new genre at the time, and became the standard repertoire of every New Orleans and traditional jazz group ever since. "King Porter Stomp," "Wolverine Blues," laid the foundations for jazz. Today we start with American Jelly Roll Morton specialist, pianist, Andrew Oliver and clarinettist, David Horniblow take the baton, before the CJO highlight the compositions and arrangements. Explore the spirit of Morton, from three different angles. Huge enjoyment and an education, too!
