xxiv, 246pp, illustrations. Dust jacket has very slight crease. Pastras's discovery of a previously unknown collection of memorabilia, including a 58-page scrapbook compiled by Morton himself, sheds new light on Morton's personal and artistic development, as well as on the crucial role played by Anita Gonzales. Pastras traces Morton's artistic development as a pianist, composer, and bandleader. Among many other topics he discusses the complexities of racial identity for Morton and his circle, his belief in voodoo, his relationships with women, his style of performance, and his roots in black musical traditions.
