Birthdays: Jelly Roll Morton & Eddie Harris –
Pianist, bandleader and composer, Jelly Roll Morton (Ferdinand Lemott Lamothe) who was born on this day in New Orleans in 1890. Morton led a very colorful life early on as a whorehouse piano player and vaudeville performer. Morton felt that he had single-handedly “invented” jazz music and was not shy about his claim. He was the first to point out the “Latin tinge” that spiced up this early music. In addition, the eclectic and imaginative saxophonist and composer Eddie Harris would have been 87 today but died in 1996.
