Quick 2-Beat. Ferdinand LaMenthe Jelly Roll Morton and his Red Hot Peppers recorded Black Bottom Stomp in 1926 with an instrumentation of trumpet, clarinet, trombone, piano, banjo, bass, and drums. Revered by many jazz historians as one of Morton’s finest works, the composition is abundant with rapid orchestrational shifts, heavy technical demands, structural logic, and Jelly Roll’s inimitable sense of humor. This arrangement for saxohone quartet was commissioned by the Tower Saxophone Quartet in 1995. No improvisation required. Medium
