"These rolls, which are all my creations, were originally released under four different labels – Jazzmaster (abbreviated as JM), JazzMan, JAM and Hot Piano Classics (HPC). The catalog number of each follows the title (i.e. African Suite is HPC 57). Everything here is jazz music of one kind or another, apart from a few Art Tatum transcriptions and novelty piano solos it is all traditional jazz piano."

JAM 225 – If It Ain’t Love as played by John Farrell. A neat little swinger recorded by Fats Waller and written by his associate Andy Razaf and bandleader Don Redman.
JAM 226 – I’m Not Worrying as played by British stride pianist Neville Dickie. This one was composed by Fats Waller and it shows!
JAM 227 – Easy Living as played by Sir Charles Thompson, this is John’s transcription of Sir Charles’ 1984 recording.
JAM 228 – Pass The Jug as played by David Boeddinghaus, one of America’s secret pianistic treasures. This one is a great stomping tune, another of John’s transcriptions. It is a totally different version from HPC 20 which we released some years ago.
JAM 229 – He Ain’t Got Rhythm as played by Martin Litton. John transcribed this little-known Irving Berlin tune from a fairly recent Litton recording.
JAM 230 – Isn’t This A Lovely Day as played by American pianist Mark Shane, who is clearly influenced by the Teddy Wilson style. This is another Irving Berlin composition, John transcribed Shane’s recording for the roll.
