Teria sido bom, Jelly...

Hear me talkin' to ya
Nat Shapiro and Nat Hentoff

"I have been robbed of three million dollars all told. Everyone today is playing my stuff and I don't even get credit. Kansas City style, Chicago style, New Orleans style – hell, they're all Jelly Roll style. I am a busy man now and have to spend all my time dealing with attorneys, but I am not to busy to get around and hear jazz that I myself introduced twenty-five years ago, before most of the kids was even born. All this jazz I hear today is my own stuff, and, if I had been paid rightfully for my work, I would now have three million dollars more than I have now."

Jelly Roll Morton (1890-1941)
