Jelly Roll Martin and the New Orleans Blues



JELLY ROLL MARTIN(CLICK)


THE BIRTH OF THE BLUES/NEW ORLEANS


Though Louis Armstrong was thought to be the first soloist of the Blues, Jelly Roll was known as the first composer of the New Orleans' Blues.  There is a wonderful historical fiction book on New Orleans in the early 19oo's that weaves Jelly Roll into the story...it is called Jass.
