Morton was a contradictory man, a “puzzingly” complex man. At pne point in his career Morton made records for a folklore collection and tackled it with many indigenous songs. The first slaves brought to New Orleans were called Dahomeans, and Vodun the name of their religion. According to “The Story of Jazz” by Marshall Stearns, West African influences lasted for years in “laissez faire” New Orleans and slowly combined with European music in “private vodun ceremonies and performances in Congo Square.” Vodun still remains and New Orleans is its capital in America.
