Auxiris Why not play ragtime, piano players? (37) RE: Why not play ragtime, piano players? 29 Mar 01


A few years ago, I was a member of the Maple Leaf Club and obtained a copy of Richard Zimmerman's collection, "101 Rare Rags". It gathered dust for several more years until I laid hands on computer software for composing and copying sheet music, as I cannot read music and do not happen to play piano (!). I have deciphered a number of these rare rags now, some of which are real gems---was glad to see that someone mentioned George Botsford, by the way. There are a couple of his compositions in the collection that are cracking good tunes. Long live ragtime music!

cheers,

Aux
