I said once that was one of the worst things I ever heard. What I meant was that most of the jazz I knew was, in the beginning, from the brickyards. But Jelly Roll was a guy who always talked a lot. He used to be around the Rhythm Club every day and stand out on the corner and he used to bull and con all those fellows.

But I used to come around especially on Friday and Saturday looking for Jelly. I went around this one Friday and he was standing on the corner. I think I was the one of the few who did know him… He was a character. Quite a talker, he had a habit of tearing people apart. And I could. In fact, in New Orleans and Chicago, Morton was generally known that he could cut people, but when he went to New York, the New York pianists really intimidated him, and Willie did. In that era of house rent parties and cutting contests, every tickler used to have a challenge piece to defeat the competition.

Here the left hand plays a beautiful descending counter line simultaneously with a variation on the Charleston rhythm while the right hand plays a figure in contrary motion. Rhythmically, tension is created by the juxtaposition of right hand figures in 3 against the left hand in 4. Morton had not bothered to do so himself, on the assumption that his amazing, breakneck, bravura piano piece would deter all competitions.

It sounds like Morton playing fast, but nothing like James P. Morton was his own man.
