Jelly's Last Jam 

When: Through Sept. 1
He wore a diamond in his tooth, denied he was black and claimed to have single-handedly invented the genre we know as jazz. Jelly Roll Morton, jazz pioneer reinvented himself so as to conquer the vast American expanse. Born a Creole of color in turn-of-the-century New Orleans, he came of age playing piano in the bawdyhouses of Storyville.
