Jelly Roll Morton lives on! Helga Plankensteiner's original project explores compositions by the great pioneer and self-proclaimed “inventor of jazz", and is so much more than a tribute act. Plankensteiner does so with an original three-wind, dark-timbre quintet (featuring a baritone sax, bass clarinet, and tuba), leaving space between neat melodic-rhythmic-harmonic twists and turns for free improvisation.
The quintet dedicates itself to creating dynamic, eclectic music that entertains musicians and audience members alike. Each song begins in a subtle and enveloping key, before slowly becoming skilfully intertwined with exquisite, agile arrangements.
