Moving on with Jazz appreciation month we come to a particular type of jazz from a particular type of city…New Orleans. There were many great and memorable musicians that came out of that town, and we’ve already featured several of them on this show. But when the Franklin Mint puts together an entire box set around the Kings of that kind of music, you need to sit and take notice. So get ready to hear the early genres begin to mix together on Jelly Roll’s keyboard in Volume 68: King Morton.
