The topic of the album Creepy Feeling is what Morton coined as the “Spanish tinge” in jazz, but in a way this misrepresents that component in his own music. Six of his recordings contain “jazz tangos,” but the influence of Latin music on his own music and on the New Orleans jazz genre is both generalized and deeper than the fact that he created a handful of jazz tangos. In his demonstration of “La Paloma”, he neither showed tango effects in his jazz music nor played jazz tango. Instead, he remaked a famous tango and fused it with jazz. Morton also made two piano versions of “Mama Nita” but the improvisation made the others sound pallid.
