Maple Leaf Stomp
Jelly Roll Morton
This performance featuring Jelly Roll Morton playing a jazzed rendition of the "Maple Leaf Rag" was recorded by Alan Lomax in 1938 as part of a series produced for the Library Of Congress.
Morton gracefully transforms Scott Joplin's "Maple Leaf Rag" the most famous ragtime piano composition of all into a stomping Jazz showpiece. He dose so to demonstrate his ability to change any tune in this way.
