Product Description:

At one time, pianist Butch Thompson, via his exposure on the NPR radio show Prairie Home Companion, was the darling of both jazz and folk audiences. Here his interpretations of the music of Jelly Roll Morton, originally recorded in 1968 for the Biograph label, should remind fans why he was so revered as a vintage jazz revivalist. Mavens of Morton will know most of these renditions, but even studious listeners might need to recall chestnuts like "Fat Meat & Greens," "Pep," and "Seattle Hunch" as played expertly by Thompson. If you are more familiar with either James Dapogny or Judy Carmichael performing this music in recent years, you might want to revisit what Thompson was doing before many others. ~ Michael G. Nastos
