“The piano got off to a late start in jazz,” notes Frederic Ramsey Jr., but, beginning with Jelly Roll Morton, it made up for lost time. Pianists became important in performance and composition. On this compilation, Morton, Earl Hines, Joe Sullivan, Fats Waller, Meade Lux Lewis, Mary Lou Williams and others put their blazing chops on display.
