The story goes that in 1938 in Washington, D.C., police arrested two men attempting to enter the Library of Congress. Apparently, the men were avid record collectors and they wanted to enter the Folklore Archives of the Library to duplicate the Jelly Roll Morton collection. This story was told in Marshall Stearns' “Story of Jazz.” The record features “Hyena Stomp”, which gives a picture on what type of jazz music Morton wanted to create.
