The New York Daily News - 1991

So Listen: "Mark Birnbaum Commemorates Jelly Roll Morton." A person doesn't get to pass the century mark but once, and even if he isn't around anymore, it's still a date that should be noted. So, for what would have been the 100th birthday Sunday of the great ragtime pianist Jelly Roll Morton, Mark Birnbaum will spend 3 1/2 hours brunch-time stint at the Angry Squire, playing the pieces of Morton, known in New Orleans as "Dr. Jazz."

Birnbaum's regular job is that of pianist on the Joe Franklin TV show. So, if you like "King Porter Stomp" and such, trot down to 216 Seventh Ave. Sunday between 12:30p.m. and 4 p.m. and give a listen.
