Jazz Changes

Williams Martin

Oxford University Press

The “Animule Ball” is derived from the two tracks in which Jelly Roll Morton depicts himself as an entertainer. The tracks recreate life in New Orleans, Louisiana. Jelly Roll Morton worked and lived in New Orleans, which is the place where the jazz genre grew and flourished. He said on a discourse regarding funerals, that no musicians in New Orleans, other than pianists, made significant amount of money. Morton knew the musical heart of the city throughout, and from that perspective he created his own brand of music, which paved the way for the popularity of jazz music.
