The Complete Morton Project

A new perspective on one of America’s most important musical figures of the 20th century

The Complete Morton Project grew out of a side project by pianist Andrew Oliver and clarinetist David Horniblow to learn all 100 or so known compositions of the great pioneering New Orleans jazz pianist and composer Jelly Roll Morton in 2018, posting two per week to YouTube for the whole year.  Andrew and David have been collaborating since 2013 when Andrew moved to London from Portland, Oregon and David returned to London after a year in Australia.  They work together primarily with the Dime Notes where their grooving bluesy approach to 20s jazz has garnered rave reviews from the UK and international press as well as with the Vitality Five where they unearth a wide variety of obscure 20s tunes with authenticity and finesse.
