Subject: Jelly Roll Morton on Radio 3

Sorry folks. I meant to point this out earlier and forgot.

Discovering Music is a Radio 3 programme which normally discusses the works of classical composers. The subject of last Sunday's programme however, was none other than Jelly Roll Morton!

The on air moment has passed and gone, but can still be caught on Listen Again until Sunday 27th Feb at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00yrhf7 . Here's the programme blurb.

The end of October 2010 saw the 120th anniversary of the birth of one of the most colourful and lively figures in jazz - Jelly Roll Morton. So to commemorate that anniversary, Alyn Shipton explores some of the musical legacies of the self-proclaimed inventor of jazz.
Alyn Shipton looks at some of Morton's forerunners (including Louis Moreau Gottschalk and Scott Joplin) with help from the pianist Philip Martin, and at Morton's own musical style - with comment from one of the world's foremost authorites on classic jazz and ragtime - Keith Nichols.

Thanks for the reminder, Fred - I mean to catch this when it was first broadcast but got sidetracked.

Mind you, I can always console myself with the complete L of C/Lomax recordings of Jelly Roll on my iPod!

I caught the last half of it but had forgotten about the listen-again option, so thanks for the reminder. His claim to have invented jazz was outlandish of course, and duly rubbished in the broadcast, but it was good to hear this genre getting noticed on Radio 3, which still remains rooted in the 1950s most of the time and which can be insufferably twee.
