Sometimes when I need help I go up to my attic and duke Ellington’s ghost helps me through my problems.


Nina katsiashvili I'm so impressed that after 11 years you came back to show some love. You have my respect.

alexthegreaser got a better one for you if you feel like being a real know it all. Buddy Bolden. He was a cornetist that was a contemporary of Jelly Roll, but he was probably more significant if the history of jazz in terms of the innovations he introduced, like the first syncopated bass drum pattern from the 4 beats per measure march beat and the rearrangement of strings to the rhythm section and horns to the front line. A lot of the reported reason Jelly Roll is more remembered is because his lighter skin tone allowed him to play the better brothels where white patrons attended. A lot of sources say he was just mediocre at piano, nothing special. Sorry, meant to be shorter. Hope someone enjoys me regurgitating wiki facts lol.
