Stumptown Jazz from Portland, Oregon play a classic Jelly Roll Morton tune called Winin’ Boy Blues, a tune about ‘a ladies man, a wanderer’ . Morton probably heard this as a folksong during his younger days while living in New Orleans. However he didn’t record it until 1939 with his New Orleans Jazzmen. You can hear the version on the great Red Hot Jazz site:
We played our interpretation of this classic and feature an unique vocal by our banjo player Dave Brown.
Stumptown Jazz consists of Leader Gary Peterson piano, Bob Erwig trumpet, Phil Hatton clarinet, Rex Rice trombone, Dave Brown banjo, John Walling tuba and Bill Franklin drums
