No matter how often he heard about it, Morton was repeatedly struck by accounts of the magnificent slice of life which prevailed freely in the Storyville district. People from every economic group, every, race, every class, and from other parts of the globe came there. Morton played three choruses there, to re-create the type of music Tony Jackson played for the naked dances in the houses. The memory was later expanded and modified into a fuller record. The basis for this was a series of ragtime riffs, modified from chorus to chorus.

Keywords:   Morton, Storyville, Tony Jackson, naked dances, ragtime riffs
