This is thought to be the only recording of Jelly Roll Morton’s touring band. All of his other records represent groups of musicians assembled just for the recording sessions. This is also one of first electrical recordings issued on the Gennett label. The flip side of this record contained Fess Williams and his Royal Flush Orchestra performing Wimmin – Aaah!
