Jelly Roll Morton
Illustrated by R. Crumb, c. 1982

In 1982 Yazoo Records issued a 36-card set devoted to Early Jazz Greats. Illustrated by cartoonist R. Crumb, in an atypical painterly style, the complete set includes such luminaries as “Jelly Roll” Morton (#3 of 36), “Bix” Beiderbecke, Coleman Hawkins, Louis Armstrong, “King” Oliver, Jack Teagarden, “Duke” Ellington, Sidney Bechet, “Fats” Waller, Bennie Moten, Benny Goodman and many others.

The Early Jazz Greats Boxed Trading Card Set by R. Crumb (1943-) was re-issued (reprinted with permission) by Denis Kitchen Publishing in August 2005.
