Clarence Williams III: 'Jelly Roll' Morton

Quotes 

  • Jelly Roll Morton : [Jelly Roll Morton enters the hall for the duel, meeting 1900 for the first time]  I believe you're sitting in my seat.

    1900 : [stands, good-naturedly]  You're the one that invented jazz, right?

    Jelly Roll Morton : That's what they say. And you're the one who can't play without the ocean under his ass, right?

    1900 : That's what they say.

    [moves to shake hands, but gets snubbed] 

  • Jelly Roll Morton : [before starting his last piece for the duel-to 1900]  You can stick this up your ass.

    1900 : [before starting his last piece of the duel-to Jelly Roll Morton]  You asked for it, asshole.

  • 1900 : You're the one who invented jazz, right?

    Jelly Roll Morton : That's what they say. And you're the one who can't play, unless you have the ocean under your ass,

    1900 : That's what they say.
