In this lesson, you will learn a transcribed portion of Jelly Roll Morton’s composition, “The Crave,” featured in the movie “The Legend of 1900.” This piece fuses elements of stride and tango and is built upon two main sections – an “A” section in D minor and a “B” section in F major. This piece is indicative of Jelly Roll Morton’s style of performance and features many advanced rhythmic and technical concepts.
