STRATFORD HUNTCH
a.k.a. Chicago Breakdown

This PDF download includes a transcription of Jelly Roll Morton's piano roll of Stratford Huntch! (Also recorded as Chicago Breakdown).  Originally released in 1924 on Vocalstyle hand-played roll, this performance is exciting and unmistakably Morton.


Morton's audio recordings had a time limit, and he usually stuck to around three minutes; on his piano rolls, he worked with unlimited time, and he takes advantage of it with about 5 minutes of improvisations.  This hot solo is one of the best examples!
