Entertainment Reviews:

Down Beat - 8/92, p.51
5 Stars - Excellent - "..Mr. Jelly Lord's keyboard touch is dry, almost professorial, but his ideas are wry, suspenseful, and certainly timeless, having informed everyone ever after.."
Musician - 4/93, p.90
"...rumbling, rolling rhythms, cunning breaks and sophisticated harmonies....Joyous..."

Here are all of Jelly Roll's classic Gennett piano solos, including the only known alternate take of "New Orleans Joys," presented in the sequence in which they were recorded. The No Noise system used to clean these old 78s up does a decent enough job, considering when these sides were cut and their rarity. Also on tap are four more solo piano sides cut in Chicago in 1924, four band sides with various personnel, topped off with two piano/cornet duets with King Oliver. A large chunk of this man's genius in one very digestible package. ~ Cub Koda
