Yeah, that's good stuff.

You probably like Scott Joplin, Eubie Blake and James P. Johnson.

I also like Zydeco. :biggrin:

yeah, I think it's supposed to be Ferdinand Morton's version of Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag, anyways it's pretty nice to listen to in a casual setting e.g. working on the computer, kinda lifts the spirit up.

It was interesting, but I'm not sure I liked it.

I have some recordings of Joplin transcribed for emsemble, which really work, and one of E. Power Biggs playing Joplin on the pedal harpsichord, of all things, and that one also works.

I think the "jazzification" in your link is done with integrity, but Ragtime is already a "jazzed-up" rendering of more standard musical forms, and it struck me a weird to twist it further.

It reminds me of the old silent movie music [laurel and hardy] :smile:

yeah, it's a fun piece to listen to and pure talent.

The original piece is called maple leaf rag by Scott Joplin. This piece is actually by Ferdinand (Jelly Roll Morton), yeah he twisted it up a bit (maple leaf stomp), I prefer Morton's version over Joplin's though.
