Here it is, as told by Morton himself to the well-known musician and critic, Lowell W. Morton had made records long before this. Way back in he had cut piano-rolls on QRS for the Wurlitzer company that are practically unknown today. They say that on his records occurred the first bass-fiddle, the first drums, and the first washboard, played by Jasper Taylor.
The story of how fly-swatters were first used by drummers is interesting. Johnson was fired later, and drummer Ben Border s took his place. Border drummed so loudly on his snare, that one night Morton bought a couple of fly swatters as a joke and gave them to him.
Border tried them out, just for kicks, and got such a smooth lift with them that he kept them. And incidentally, Morton is supposed to have made the first movie short of a jazz band. For example, he actually played in W.
Arriving in Chicago later, Jelly-Roll had to fight for the recognition that finally came to him. The best piano players came from St. At that time, Morton himself had written arrangements for a lot of classical melodies, a cycle that is being repeated today.

So one night he told the band that it was through and started out as a boxing promoter. In a short time he was flat broke. Just to top it off, he received a wire asking him to return home at once because of illness.
That night he picked up enough to start with by playing at a dance, and eventually arrived home to discover that it was a fake. Then an offer to join the music publishing house of Spikes-Morton-Spikes brought him out of hiding. He left this firm to join the Melrose Music Publishing Co.
Eventually, Stein organized the MCA, and Morton was booked by him untilwhen he got tired of jumping two or three hundred miles a night in those old cars and quit. Transportation at that time was not as easy as it is now.
