Jelly Roll Morton - Jazz Man 12 (1938)

Just found a book that I need to get called Hot Jazz for Sale: Hollywood's Jazz Man Record Shop.

It tells the story of how Marili Morden founded The Jazz Man Record Shop in 1939 with her first husband, then married her second husband in 1943, the brother of the founder of Atlantic Records, and brought some early jazz greats out of retirement to record again.

Here we have a pair of Jelly Roll Morton piano solos recorded in Washington DC in December of 1938.

Rust lists these as being dubbed from privately reorded acetates.
